Destination Dublin

Dublin, Ireland
As we settle into the month of March we look toward the day when local waterways are dyed the same shade as our beer and bagels.  St. Patrick's Day is on March 17 and commemorates the life and death of Saint Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland.  For over 1,000 years the Irish people have celebrated and held festivals in his honor.  They would attend mass in the morning and feast in the afternoon.  This celebration means lots of food, drink and dancing and the fun spread quickly to the rest of the world.  Although you can observe this holiday full of beer and song anywhere in the world, what better way to spend St. Patrick's Day than in the beautiful city of Dublin.
