The burning question*: Did you enjoy St Patrick’s Day?

It’s the end of the bank holiday, so let distract you from the ‘serious’ news with one of life’s REAL dilemmas. (*not really)

The Irish... sure, we're a great bunch of lads.

WE KNOW HOW you feel. It’s hurtling towards the end of St Patrick’s bank holiday weekend and there isn’t a child in the house washed.

So do like we do here in HQ and get stuck into a serious debate on one of life’s most pressing issues.


This week: A simple one, this.

Every year we see/hear/read criticism of St Patrick’s Day, in terms of alcohol-fuelled bad behaviour. But is it all bad? What about the family festival fun and pride in being Irish?

Putting aside the fact that it gives us a bank holiday – and hey, who hates an extra day’s holiday – did you actually enjoy St Patrick’s Day this year?
