Party for Paddy’s

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - GROOVE -

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.
