Saint Patrick's Day (Irish: Lá Fhéile Pádraig (The Festival of Patrick): Saunt Petherick's Day) is a cultural and religious holiday
celebrated internationally on 17 March in Dublin, Ireland. The
tradition came about at the instigation of the Irish Protestant
organisation The Knights of St. Patrick. The inaugural parade took place
on 17 March 1783. In what has been described as an act of cultural
re-orientation the British established a new focus of ritual and
spectacle in the figure of St. Patrick, a pre-reformation saint who
appealed to both the Roman Catholic and Irish Protestant traditions in
Ireland (Cullen, 1997, p.67).
