This is a day that is celebrated around the world each year and it amazes me every time I see other countries celebrate our national holiday. It makes me so proud to be Irish, in particular when I hear about all the achievements that Irish people have made over the years in all aspects of life.
Even though we are a small country there is an estimated 70 million people around the globe that call themselves Irish.
Wherever you are celebrating St Patrick’s day, whether you are Irish or not enjoy the celebrations and learning about the Irish culture of dance, poetry and music.
Here are some photos I have taken of Ireland.
