Irish Internet Radio and TV from Dublin, Ireland.
I would be interested in finding out where and how St Patrick's Day is celebrated around the world. Others on Live Ireland might like to share details of events they will be attending or involved in. Perhaps after the event people could post images or videos. I will be attending the Westbury St Patrick's Festival in Tasmania.
St Patrick's Day and Festival in Tasmania
Westbury in the North of Tasmania is the site of Tasmania's largest celebration of St Patrick's Day and also has a weekend festival on the weekend that falls nearest to the day itself. The website has details of the events held http://www.wspf.info/index.html and also details the towns many connections to Irish history http://www.wspf.info/gpage2.html The most important connection is that the Irish community of Westbury harboured and aided the escape from Tasmania of Young Irelanders, John Mitchell and Thomas Francis Meagher.
