Happy St. Patrick's Day
17th March 2021
Every year we celebrate St. Patrick's Day with events to showcase the talents and achievements of Irish people right across the country. Although we can't gather together to mark our national day this year, we can still enjoy the festivities with lots of great events to watch online.
St Patrick's Fesitval Is Going Online
St. Patrick’s Festival TV is a dedicated TV channel online and accessible globally and on Oirechtas TV. Tune in and you'll be able to enjoy more than 100 events, created by arists, performers, makers and dreamers across the island. The entertainment starts from 12th March and runs up to 17th March. Over 6 nights, you will be able to stream events in real time and have the chance to replay the shows again on the website Player.
Fun Ideas To Enjoy At Home
Although we can't meet up with friends to enjoy the day, there are still plenty of things for the family to do at home to celebrate St. Patrick's Day.
The Virtual Parade is back again this year and people all over Ireland will have the chance to join the celebrations and share their home-parade across the world with the hashtag #RTEVirtualParade.
Last year, the Virtual Parade trended across the world and the reach is expected to be even bigger this year. Time to get out the green and decorations - and you never know who might be featured on the national news later on in the day.
If you have kids at home who need to be entertained, why not print off colouring pages from Crayloa's website. There are plenty of themed pages for the kids to enjoy for hours.
Get Baking In The Kitchen
Everyone has been brushing up on their baking skills during the lockdown. Why not check our ultimate brown bread receipe for something simple and easy to make for everyone to enjoy.
Tune Into The Late Late
The Late Late Show is moving from its usual spot on Friday and there will be a special broadcast on St. Patrick's Day. Ryan Tubridy will on from 9:30pm with lots of chat, entertainment and Irish traditional music.
Need To Get In Touch
Our phone lines will be closed on St. Patrick's Day but you can still get a quote online for car, home, van, business, gadget or life insurance. Our business hours will return to normal on Thursday 18th March.
