As well as a fine excuse to drink too much Guinness and pretend to be Irish for a day, St Patrick’s Day is also the celebration of Ireland’s patron saint. Held every year on 17th March, the day continues to grow in popularity with more and more cities in the UK - and around the world – spending the day raising a toast to the Emerald Isle. Ireland is the world’s favourite second country – as evidenced with St Paddy’s day being celebrated in places as diverse as Montserrat, Auckland and Tokoyo.

Time for a history lesson. St Patrick was born in Roman Britain in the 5th century. His father was a Deacon and his Grandfather a Priest. The legend goes that he was kidnapped and taken to Ireland by raiders; eventually he managed to makes good his escape after God came to him in a vision advising a boat would wait for him on the coast.

On returning to Britain, Patrick determined that he would return to Ireland as a Missionary, the story goes that he did exactly this, converting thousands of Pagans to Christianity and driving the snakes out of Ireland. One part of the story which has been completely fabricated – probably by Saint Patrick himself – was the driving out of the snakes from Ireland – Ireland has never had snakes!

St Patrick’s Day celebrations date back to the 17th Century. St Patrick’s Day was then a religious feast commemorating the death of Saint Patrick in the 5th century. With the coming of the 20th century St Patrick's Day began to take the shape we are familiar with today. From the 1920-1950s a public parade became traditional in Dublin and it has since spread to cities across the globe.

Paddy’s Day Celebrations – What to Do

Blighty’s Best St Patrick’s Day Party

St Patrick's Day parades are held throughout the UK, one of the biggest is in Birmingham. This year, the BBC, reports around 85,000 people joined the parade held in the Digbeth area aka ‘the Irish Quarter of Birmingham’, roads were closed off with two stages for live music in place. In attendance was the Irish Ambassador to Great Britain, Dan Mulhall, who proclaims the event to be ‘as good as anywhere in the world’. The event is actually the third biggest globally with only New York and Dublin attracting larger crowds, this is due to Birmingham having the largest Irish population in the UK and Britain’s only dedicated Irish quarter. So although you may have missed this year’s parade there is loads you can do to celebrate.

St Patrick’s Day in Birmingham:

  1. Visit the Old Crown all week from Sunday-Sunday, 12th-18th March for events including Irish films, sport, food and music
  2. Visit the Gin Parlour at Jekyll and Hyde, get quirky cocktails like a miniature bath of gin
  3. Enjoy Emerald green Guinness by the tub load
  4. Boogie on down to Reflex for an 80s retro disco party
  5. What better than an Irish pub on St Patrick’s Day? Visit O’Neills for lots of Irish themed fun

Green Beer

No its not made from leprechaun wee or even blitzed up shamrocks, green beer is easy to make and you can find everything you need in your local supermarket. We sought help from the erstwhileBetty Crocker.

Ingredients

  1. A light pale beer/ipa, the darker the beer the harder it is to dye it, so unfortunately Guinness is out. The lighter the beer the brighter the green will be!
  2. Glass
  3. Green food colouring from the baking isle of the supermarket

Steps

  1. Add approx. 5 drops of food colouring to the bottom of an empty pint glass
  2. The more you add the darker the green
  3. Pro tip hold up your Ireland flag to compare the authenticity of your green hued beer
  4. Eat with an Irish beef stew (ripe for dying green - if you can stomach it) and you will feel like Saint Paddy himself

Green Chocolate Chip Cookies

These green cookies will get your kids in the festive spirit. These are easy to make, you simply need to add some food colouring to a basic cookie recipe.The recipe is easy to follow, have fun.
