Barrington Celebrates St. Patrick's Day

350. Beannachtaí na Féile Pádraig!

Home Newsroom 350. Beannachtaí na Féile Pádraig!

We’re celebrating St. Patrick’s Day with Celtic Fest, live Irish Music, food, beer and dancing here in Barrington, but the holiday is a holy one in Ireland, where St. Patrick is the patron saint. History books say he was born in Roman Britain in the 4th century, was kidnapped by Irish raiders at age 16 and taken captive as a slave on the west coast of Ireland.  He was told by God in a dream to flee to his home in Britain where he later became a priest and returned to Ireland.  Irish folklore tells that, in one of St. Patrick’s most popular teaching methods, he used the shamrock to explain the Christian doctrine of the Trinity to the Irish people.

Saint Patrick’s Day was made an official feast day in the early 17th century, and is observed each year on March 17th, the anniversary of St. Patrick’s death.  Whether you’re wearing green, planning to party, going to mass or all of thee above, here’s a St. Patrick’s Day toast to help keep those snakes where they belong.

St. Patrick was a gentleman,
Who through strategy and stealth,
Drove all the snakes from Ireland,
Here’s a toasting to his health.
But not too many toastings
Lest you lose yourself and then
Forget the good St. Patrick
And see all those snakes again.

St. Patrick’s Day Blessings (Beannachtaí na Féile Pádraig) and a St. Paddy’s Day Jig…I DARE YOU TO DO THIS TODAY!

European Starling enjoying the heated birdbath. Starlings are a non-native, invasive species; they are aggressive and displace native species from nest holes. Still, they’re kind of pretty. The heated birdbath remains unfrozen in cold weather and attracts many species of birds. #europeanstarling #starling #starlingsofinstagram #nonnative #invasivespecies #heatedbirdbath #backyardbirds #backyardbirding #birding #birdingphotography #birdphotography #nikonbirds #citizensforconservation #365barrington ...
