It was originally created as a Christian feast day to celebrate St. Patrick (patron saint of Ireland) who brought Christianity to the island nation. It is said that St. Patrick used the shamrock (3-leafed clover) to teach the native people about the Holy Trinity.
More commonly, the day celebrates Irish culture, heritage and food.
New York City has its famous parade with pipe bands and step dancers, and Chicago goes so far as to dye the river green.
For our part, the Fort William Henry Hotel and Conference Center is bringing you “A Taste of Ireland.”
On March 17th, from 4 pm to 8 pm, Executive Chef Anthony Teta and his award-winning culinary team will be serving all of your favorite Irish foods including:
