St. Patrick’s Day 2014 in Dubai
On Monday March 17th, the Irish celebrate St Patrick’s Day joined by many others across the globe. As early as the 17th century, the Irish have been wearing green ribbons and shamrocks on this day. It is said that Saint Patrick used the shamrock to explain the Holy Trinity to the pre-Christian Irish, and since then, the shamrock has been the main symbol of St-Patrick’s Day.
These days, St Patrick’s Day is celebrated by people from all over the world from as far as Australia to North-America including the UAE. Dubai has always been home to a large Irish community and they have one of the oldest ex pat societies in Dubai which was set up in 1974. One of the highlights of the Dubai Irish Society social calendar is the St Patrick’s Day ball which this year is being held on 21st March.
