UPCOMING EVENT: St. PATRICK's DAY 2016…
The history of St Patrick’s Day, and how the date came to be an excuse for a cracking good party, dates back to medieval times and may be even older.
The saint himself was revered in Ireland very soon after his death in the 5th century, so it may well be that his anniversary – 17 March – was spent as a holy day of remembrance by his followers in the immediate aftermath of his departure.
Moving forward to the 15th century, 17 March was recognised as one of 35 feast and fasting days of Ireland.
Although it was one of so many, it was one of the most important and most loved because St Patrick was Ireland’s very own apostle, credited with bringing Christianity to the island’s shores and to its people.The event is tomorrow & mAdE t.V will be there to give you sights and sounds of the event… Giztzzz… mAdE t.V!
