Saint Patricks Day by any other name?
No no to St Patty’s day
Please do not call it this wonderful day "St Patty’s day". Look at the pictures below-Does that magnificant mountain look like it could be called "Croagh Patty"No it doesn't!
It’s bad enough that some people in Ireland call it Paddys day -but at least Paddy is a commonly used abbreviation for the name Patrick-or the Irish (Gaelic)version of the name - Padraig.
Patty might be an Americanisation-but it does not sound good or genuine.We all speak English and Patrick is not difficult to say –so please use it?
It’s Irish and should remain Irish. Please respect it, and have fun.
Some real genuine modern rural Irish Photos -with a twist-for your Saint Patricks day enjoyment.
