Saint Patrick’s Day (The Feast of Saint Patrick) is a public holiday in Northern Ireland and The Republic of Ireland and is held on the 17 March – widely believed to be the day of Saint Patrick’s death, the Patron Saint of Ireland. The day commemorates Saint Patrick and the arrival of Christianity in Ireland and celebrates the heritage and culture of the Irish in general.
Contraband offers a craicing range of St Patrick’s Day entertainment for hire! Our acts include parade performers, Irish event hosts, comedians, Celtic dancers and fire performers.
Did you know?
Irish folklore has it that St. Patrick used the three-leaved shamrock to explain the Christian Holy Trinity. Consequently, on Saint Patrick’s Day people wear shamrocks on their coats and closed Saint Patrick’s Day by “drowning the shamrock” i.e placing the shamrock in a glass of whiskey before drinking!
On St. Patrick’s Day, Guinness (Irish stout) is the drink of the day – indeed on St. Patrick’s Day, about 3 million pints of Guinness are downed!
