Ireland has been inhabited for 12,500 years—so it makes sense they would have a rich mixture of holidays: Celtic, Christian, and historical. When most people hear the term Irish holiday, they immediately think of St. Patrick’s Day— despite the fact St. Paddy’s only became popular in Ireland around the millennium.
