Saint Patrick’s Day or Lá Fhéile Pádraig, “the Day of the Festival of Patrick,” is the widely known March 17th commemoration of the death date of Ireland’s Saint Patrick. This day has been celebrated for hundreds of years, morphing from a religious based holiday to the more secular version known to us in current years.
While this day celebrates many aspects of Ireland’s history worldwide, there is still lot more to uncover. Therefore this month we have a plethora of options for you to learn more about the Irish experience, whether through the fiction of James Joyce or Roddy Doyle to historic Irish bars of Chicago and Celtic patterns.
So check out the display in the library (right across from classroom 1220), featuring all things Irish for your perusal! If you are interested in learning more about the history of Saint Patrick’s Day, check out our previous post here.
