St Patrick’s Day Continues to Grow in Popularity

by Maria on February 10, 2012

In Australia, St Patrick’s Day celebrations have taken place on 17 March since 1810, when the then Governor, Lachlan Macquarie, declared the date an official day of celebration for the Irish and those of Irish heritage. 200 years later, we are still celebrating with an annual street parade and family day on the third Sunday of March – this year it is on Sunday 18th March 2012. The Sydney St Patrick’s Day Parade is the second largest in the world, after the New York celebrations. More information available through the organizers: media@stpatricksday.org.au
