And a few interesting St. Patrick’s Day:

“The shortest St Patrick’s Day parade in the world takes place in DripseyCork. The parade lasts just 100 yards and travels between the village’s two pubs.” Wikipedia

“Though green is a very popular color on St. Patrick’s Day, the original color that was very popular and often related back to St. Patrick was not green, but blue.” TopTenz.

“There are four places in the United States named after the shamrock, the floral emblem of Ireland: Mount Gay-Shamrock, WV; Shamrock, TX; Shamrock Lakes, IN; and Shamrock, OK.” History.com

“Another St. Patrick myth is the claim that he banished snakes from Ireland. It’s true no snakes exist on the island today, Freeman said. But they never did. Ireland, after all, is surrounded by icy ocean waters—much too cold to allow snakes to migrate from Britain or anywhere else.” National Geographic
