St Patricks Festival
St Patricks Day! What does this day symbolize for you? For many years the tradition on St Patricks Day was for spiritual renewal and offering of prayers for missionaries worldwide. People came together and celebrated St Patrick driving the snakes out of Ireland. Now in the 21st century traditions and beliefs seemed to have changed and the gap between generations is apparent when it comes to celebrating St Patricks Day and what was once traditionally a religious day is now a day of celebration and festivities.
St Patricks Day March 17th is recognized all around the world and its interesting to see how different cultures celebrate this religious holiday. For the thousands of people who have immigrated to pastures new celebrating St Particks Day allows them to connect with fellow migrants and it unites people who's paths may not have crossed otherwise.
What will you be doing this St Patricks Day? Will you be celebrating overseas, Will you be attending the local parade or will you be celebrating it's intended meaning. Here at Newgrange Lodge we will be busy preparing for the coming season ahead. We welcome both national and international travelers and if you are looking for somewhere to stay then why not consider Newgrange Lodge here in the heart of The Boyne Valley.
