Saint Patrick’s Day in Seoul, 2014

 

When you live in Korea long enough expecting public holidays from home to fall on their usual day or date becomes a waste of time. Really. Anyone American will be familiar with Thanksgiving falling on a Saturday, and even the Superbowl the night after. Irish, like myself, are now most familiar with a Saturday Saint Patrick’s Day, and yesterday was no different from other years (except for last year and the year before when Paddy’s Day actually fell on the weekend…which kind of ruins my point), the day of Ireland and it’s ‘ness was transformed from its early weekday schedule to a much more alcoholic friendly Saturday.


Saint Patrick’s Day Festival in Seoul, 2012.

I thought I’d share some pictures with you from the festival which took place last Saturday. This was the 12th year Saint Patrick’s Day has been celebrated by the Irish Association of Korea, and the second year in a row that we didn’t have a parade. This didn’t detract from the festivities, and our venue, the D Cube Center in Sindorim, was perfect as the auditorium like design kept everyone tightly packed in together and allowed for a wonderful festive atmosphere that people could sit back and enjoy.

I’m going to throw up a few photos for you here and I hope you can enjoy them. For more photos and details about the Irish Association of Korea, visit our website.
