Party for Paddy’s
PADDY’S Irish Bar in Macrossan St is gearing up to celebrate the ‘‘friendliest day of the year’’ on Sunday.
While St Patrick’s Day is credited for bringing Christianity to Ireland and ridding the country of snakes way back in the fourth century, for the rest of the world it is a chance to find a shamrock, get dressed up in outlandish green clothing and enjoy a Guiness or three to celebrate ... celebrating.
Paddy’s is hosting what will be the best St Patrick’s Day celebrations in town on Sunday, opening their doors to the thirsty public at 10am.
With a few of Ireland’s favourite dishes added to the menu such as beef and Guinness pie, Irish stew and the ever-popular fish pie, there will be plenty on offer to satisfy your Irish hunger.
The Irish pub will also be amping up the live music to keep the punters entertained with the musical stylings of Gregg Buchanan playing during the day and Mark Howard who will hit the stage with some Irish favourites in the evening.
Paddy’s manager Ping Gibb-Cheng said the festivities will run until late and they are expecting a large, fun crowd to mark the occasion.
‘‘We welcome anyone who wants to have some fun, listen to some good music and celebrate Ireland’s favourite day,’’ she said.
‘‘We will have happy hours and be serving the Irish favourites - Guinness, Jameson, Kilkenny and Baileys.’’
If you consider yourself a dancer with a few pints under your belt you may want to unleash your feet on a little Irish jig.
