March 17th 2014 is the anniversary of the death of the Irish Saint, St Patrick and is also known as St Patrick’s Day. It is traditional to wear something green on St Patrick’s Day, particularly for those of Irish Descent, and some people even take it a step further to dress in traditional Irish Clothing, or by wearing a shamrock; a three leaved plant similar in appearance to clover.
The colour green has been associated with Ireland since the 1640’s when the green harp flag was first used by the Irish Catholic Confederation. What is known of St Patrick has been derived from the Declaration which shows St Patrick’s struggle after he was kidnapped by raiders and spent six years working as a shepherd in Gaelic Ireland. He ‘found god’ working there, and upon returning home, managed to convert thousands of pagan Irish to Christianity.
