Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

We’d like to wish all our customers a very Happy St. Patrick’s Day! We hope you’ll be celebrating in style.

We’ll certainly be having a pint of Guinness or two. Well it would be rude not to as it was St. Patrick himself that suggested we all have a drop of the ‘hard stuff’ on his feast day.

Did you know that every single day, 5.5 million pints of Guinness are drunk? However, on St. Patrick’s Day this amount doubles! That sounds like one almighty hangover!

Of course we love St. Patrick’s Day here in Ireland, but you don’t have to be Irish to join in the celebrations. In fact, St. Patrick wasn’t even from Ireland originally. It is thought that he was born in either England. Scotland or Wales and was brought to Ireland when he was captured by Irish pirates!

So you see, everyone has a claim to St. Patrick so you must of course celebrate his feast day! One way to join in the festivities is to dress up in green. Go out on the town in Ireland on St. Patrick’s Day and it’s a sea of green everywhere. But did you know, the original colour of his vestments was actually blue? For many years the colour green was considered to be unlucky!

For fun, we’ve picked out some great St. Patrick’s Day plates.

So how about 9 STP? Or you could opt for one of our many PAT plates such as 56 PAT. 72 PAT or PAT 3.

But if you do snap one up, don’t take it out with you if you’re going to be having a drink. Get a taxi instead and keep safe.

Whatever your plans are, be sure to have a brilliant night!
