12 Irish Quotes Worth Celebrating On St. Patrick’s Day For Good Luck

On St. Patrick’s Day, we commemorate the feast day of the Roman Catholic patron saint of Ireland — St. Patrick. Ironically, his original Romanicized name, Patricious, isn’t even Irish. Born and bred in Britain, St. Patrick was kidnapped into slavery by a band of pirates. It was around the time when he was sold into slavery that he is said to dream of seeing God. The details of how he managed to escape his chains, joined a monastery, and converted masses as a missionary, are lost in the folds of History.

18th century Irish soldiers who fought in the Revolutionary war, were the first participants of the St. Patrick’s Day parades in the 18th century. The celebrations today are bigger and wider than ever before. 17th March is all about paying homage to one’s Irish heritage. While getting heady on green beer and dressing up in all shades of green seems like a great way to pay tribute, check out these Irish quotes for St. Patrick’s Day. After all, while getting your fill of viridescent ale makes for great Instagram pictures, these mesmerizing Irish quotes celebrate the true spirit of the holiday – blessings of health and happiness, and the beauty of the Emerald Isle and the resolve of its people.
