    I see. And because the bishop Patrick was an Irish, the green is the colour of his day. Thanks for information. So, although it is celebrated in another countries too (as in America), St.Patrick's day is a national day if the Irish, right?
    The truth is that is has been taken over by the Americans so it really has nothing to do with St Patrick or Ireland, rather simply a celebration of the Irish state.

    Just google St Patrick's flag and you will see it has nothing to do with the Irish state or flag. It was rather hilarious a few years ago when I got my mother a St Patrick's flag for St Patrick's day and she didn't know what it was. :rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl:

    Sorry, when i said republican I didn't mean it with certain......"unfortunate associations" solely in terms of "an irish state, by the irish people, for the irish people".

    Today is the 17th March, so....

    Happy St Patrick's Day! :woo:

    I refuse to use the leprechaun. Sorry.

    If you celebrate it, what are you getting up to today? Are you going to a local parade? If you're away from Ireland like me, what are you up to?

    I have class today, but I'm wearing my Ireland rugby top. I hope to avoid the terrible fake Irish accents going around campus.
    I'm celebrating by declaring my room at uni a Republic.

    Does that mean when it is a balmy Easter morning, and you get yourself out of bed, there was Easter "up rising" ?

    I thought the "Loyalists" were British people who colonised Ireland? Then the Republicans have been attempting to remove them ever since and failing to do so. :lolz:

    Happy St Patrick's Day. I'll have a cup of Barry's and a Kimberley in the morning, sausages and colcannon washed down with Club Orange for dinner, and several pints of Harp later on followed by chips and curry sauce.

    It doesn't. Not really. It has to do with an organisation named after St Patrick but it has only existed since 1783.
