A DAY ON THE CALENDAR FOR THE IRISH AND THE IRISH-AT-HEART
St. Patrick’s Day occurs annually on March 17 in observance of the death of St. Patrick, the patron Saint of Ireland. What began as a religious feast day in the 17th century has evolved into a variety of festivals across the globe celebrating Irish culture with parades, special foods, music, dancing, and a whole lot of green. Liverpool boasts one of the strongest Irish heritages in the UK and as you’ll see from the list below, we know how to celebrate it. From parades to burgers and the odd pub crawl in between, drape yourself in the famous tricolour and get ready for the craic.
