Happy St Pat's Day blah blah blah

Dig out your emerald green hats and shirts and join in the celebration of St Patrick's Day, held each year in honour of the 4th-century Welsh shepherd Maewyn Succat, who changed his name to Patricius, became a preacher and converted large numbers of Irish to Christianity.

Brisbane's 18th annual St Patrick's Day Parade, which takes place tomorrow, is set to be the highlight of an array of Irish celebrations.

Crowds of 30,000 or more are expected to line the streets to watch about 40 colourful floats and 600 marchers wind their way through the city. More....
Have a fabulous time however you choose to celebrate, slainte!
