Happy (virtual) Saint Patrick’s Day!

La fête de la Saint Patrick est un belle occasion pour se retrouver entre amis, chanter, danser et faire la fête !

Dans cet article nous partageons avec vous quelques moyens de marquer cet évènement malgré le contexte sanitaire, et de célébrer la culture irlandaise de façon virtuelle ! Prenez bien soin de vous et vos proches, et Happy Saint Patrick’s Day ! ☘☘

Watch the virtual Parade

Follow #StPatricksDayTogether or #virtualpaddysday2020 to see family celebrations, costumes and artwork, created for the occasion and shared in a different way for this year.

Watch a streamed concert

With the cancellation of public events and concerts, some artists have found a different way of sharing their music with fans.

If you enjoy traditional music, the group Mary Walloper will be playing in their home-made « pub » on their youtube channel at 9pm (French time).

If you’re still up at midnight (French time), and want to pogo in your living room, Boston punk group The Dropkick Murphys will be streaming a special concert on numerous social media channels

Watch a film or a video

Ireland has produced a number of highly talented film makers, so if you’re feeling quiet you can spend the evening watching a work of art (in English with subtitles bien sûr 😉). Whether it’s comedy, romance, historically themed or social comment, you’re sure to be absorbed!

Take a Virtual reality tour

The amazing website Virtual Reality Pop has a collection of Saint Patrick’s-themed immersive tours of parts of Ireland, and of parades from former years.

Whatever you end up doing, we wish you a happy and peaceful Saint Patrick’s. Stay safe and look after your loved ones 💚💚
