The English Ambassadors received the luck of the Irish last week. The National Day of Ireland (St Patrick’s Day) took place on March 17th and is celebrated around the world every year to honour Saint Patrick. Legend has it that St Patrick drove all the snakes out of Ireland and we celebrate his life and achievement of converting the religion of the Irish Paganson this day.
The Shamrock is a national symbol of Ireland and while its roots are cemented in the holy trinity, shamrocks are given to others to express wishes and good fortune. The English Ambassadors of SFXC wrote their wishes and dreams on shamrocks and these are on display on a rainbow on campus. Let’s see if the luck of the Irish is upon the English Ambassadors!
