Saint Patrick’s Day ( Lá Fhéile Pádraig) is Ireland’s National Holiday, it fall’s on the 17th of March each year and is named after Saint Patrick (AD 387–461), the patron saints of Ireland. It began as a purely Catholic holiday and became an official feast day in the early 17th century. It is a public holiday in Ireland, Newfoundland and Labrador and in Montserrat (Caribbean Island). It is also widely celebrated by the Irish all over the world, especially in places such as Great Britain, Canada, the United States, Japan, South Korea, Argentina, Australia, and New Zealand, among others.
In Cincinnati, Molly’s is the place to be, we will be working with the Cincinnati Gaelic Athletic Association this year to celebrate St Patricks day and Irish heritage through music, dance, food and drink. The Cincinnati Gaelic Athletic Association is a non-profit community based organization, promoting Irish culture and heritage through the traditional Irish sports of Gaelic Football and Hurling Court Street, in-front of the pub is closed to traffic and each year a large 120? X 40? tent is erected with bars and a large stage.
The festivities kick off with ‘Kegs & Eggs’ and the first 100 people through the door will recieve a Molly’s souniver shirt, and lasts till the wee hours of the morning. With three floors in the pub, stages on two and the outside stage in the tent, you can be sure to hear the best of the regions Irish bands. The Emerald Society Police & Fire, Pipes & Drums calls Molly’s home, and play throughout the day, and there is always troops of Irish dancers on hand. Ol, ceol, bia agus craic.
