In Ireland, an island country located in northwest of Europe, Saint Patrick's Day is the equivalent of a national day and has been a public holiday for many years.
Saint Patrick's Day, or the Feast of Saint Patrick, is a cultural and religious celebration held on 17 March, the traditional death date of Saint Patrick (c. AD 385–461), the foremost patron saint of Ireland.
