Festivals this March on the Island of Ireland

This March 2020 the island of Ireland will celebrate three important events.

  1. Seachtain na Gaeilge takes place from March 9th to March 13th, visit peig.ie or snag.ie for event information. Don’t worry you can translate the site if your Irish is a bit rusty. I’ll be encouraging our household to practice a cúpla focal.
  2. Mother’s Day takes place on March 22nd, so don’t miss that or there’ll be war up and down the country with wooden spoons threatened from every angle! Including my own.
  3. And St Patrick’s Day takes place on March 17th – the largest St. Patrick’s Day Festivals are highlighted below but for more inspiration see this:
