Shamrocks, snakes and the Patron Saint himself! With St Patrick's Day looking different this year, we thought we would share ideas on how best to have some craic agus ceoil.
With the weather looking good for St Patrick’s Day why not organize a scavenger hunt?
Pinterest have many different templates to give an easy print and use option, but this could easily be replicated yourself. Create some clues to hide around the house and garden. Treats to keep kids and adults entertained along the way are a must! Silly snakes which St Patrick missed. Don’t forget the crock of gold at the end with some chocolate coins! Here is a great start for some inspiration.
Keep up the tradition and wear your best St Patrick's Day clothes and accessories. Making time to dress up in fashionably silly attire, can set the tone for a great fun filled day!
It’s coming up to teatime and you are wondering what to have with your cuppa. Why not keep it simple with a Tayto crisp sandwich? Sliced pan paired with real butter and cheese and onion flavoured crisps is the perfect combination. Here is a simple recipe. Tayto Crisps are the essential ingredient!
The famous tradition of joining the parade unfortunately won’t be happening this year. But virtually we can view the great spectacle from the comfort of our homes.
