Happy St Patrick’s Day!

March 17th is the most important say of the year for the Irish and for Irish communities all around the world. It is the official day of the Patron Saint of Ireland, St Patrick. But these days it is famous not so much for religious reasons, than for the party atmosphere it heralds, when vast quantities of stout are consumed (a traditional dark Irish beer, the most famous of which is Guinness) in celebration of the man who is considered to have converted the pagan Irish Celts to Christianity.
