St. Patrick’s Worldwide on its way – Budapest 2019!

Be Irish … Everyone is Irish To-day!

March 17th, which is about St. Patrick’s Worldwide, and about the beer we associate with  Ireland immediately.

A little background in time … St. Patrick’s Day in Ireland has been an official national holiday since 1903. Patrick lived in the fifth century, and taught the Irish to the teachings of Jesus. Already in the seventh century it was a great cult, and in the 1800s the church officially named his day 17 March.

March 17 is an important day in many countries around the world: from Dublin to Dubai, from Peru to Paris or from Sydney to Stockholm, it is originally about Irish and descendants of the country to celebrate the Island of Ireland together. And they do it so well that they are also attached to those who have no attachment to Ireland. In the latter, it is almost certain that Ireland and perhaps the most popular stout in the world, Guinness, has a huge role to play.

In Hungary … There are only a few hundred Irish people in Hungary, but mutual sympathy plays a major role in the fact, that for eight years, Budapest has been hosting the biggest Saint Patrick’s Day in Central and Eastern Europe. The procession and festival are part of the Irish National Day and are joined by the Hungarians.

On Sunday, March, 17. from Noon to 3 p.m. gathering at District V. on the Szabadság Square. And before hitting onwards a delicious choice of real Irish beef burgers on the spot to ease the hunger. Following the route from downtown at 3 p.m.  New attraction coming from Ireland … recruited staff from penitentiary institutions of Prison Service Pipe Band, of which 52 pipers blowing the Irish folk music.  The marchers are led by just as in the previous years with a huge St. Patrick’s dummy as the leader of the march. The route goes through the Andrássy Road and arriving to the “Fogasház” Instant Club (pub, party venue) at district, VII., 49-51 Akacfa Street continuing the celebration party.
From 4 p.m. a variety of programs await the participants in a real pub atmosphere for kids playing games, getting to know the Irish motif world, and of course the bands in the club will play live Irish music in a variety of styles. Most probably foreigners beside Irish folks will be swell to join the celebration.

Still in time … shop Men’s Green Shirt, Hoodies, Pants and More … but don’t be green being jealous of another. Head out to your the favorite pub and off you go to celebrate.

Cheer with a Guinness just like around the World millions do it’s

St. Patrick’s Day! – Irish National Day!
