La tarde del  viernes empezamos el programa festivo con una exposición sobre las tradiciones irlandesas, acompañados  de pintas de cerveza y platos típicos.  NO faltaron los gorros de Leprechaun ni la tradicional ”No never, no more”. 

GORROS SAN PATRICIO

I’ve been a wild rover for many a year. And I spent all my money on whiskey and beer. And now I’m returning with gold in great store. And I never will play the wild rover no more.

Chorus: And it’s no, nay, never, No nay never no more, Will I play the wild rover No never no more.

I went to an ale-house I used to frequent. And I told the landlady my money was spent. I asked her for credit, she answered me “nay Such a custom as yours I could have any day.”

IRLANDA BANDERA

Chorus

I took from my pocket ten sovereigns bright. And the landlady’s eyes opened wide with delight. She said “I have whiskey and wines of the best. And the words that I spoke sure were only in jest.” 

Chorus

I’ll go home to my parents, confess what I’ve done.  And I’ll ask them to pardon their prodigal son. And if they caress (forgive) me as ofttimes before Sure I never will play the wild rover no more.

Chorus

St. Patricks Day Traditions

St. Patricks Day Traditions

March 17th commemorates the death in 481 of St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland, who was responsible for bringing Christianity to the island. People in many countries across the world celebrate Irish traditions with parades, concerts, dancing, fireworks and other festivities. They dress up in traditional costume, or they wear green clothes (Ireland is also known as the Emerald Island because it gets so much rain and its landscapes are so very green). You can see Irish flags and shamrocks everywhere. Shamrocks are plant leaves with three parts (like in the advert for our activities!), which many people consider a symbol of good luck.

Another common symbol of Irish tradition is the leprechaun: this is a mischievous little fairy figure, famous for making shoes and keeping their gold in a pot at the end of the rainbow (like in the advert too!). Tradition says that if a human being ever captures a leprechaun, the little creature will grant three wishes in order to obtain their freedom. Maybe this is why people also consider the leprechaun as a source of good luck. And they have an interesting connection with Spain. According to the early Irish myths, Ireland was populated by the Milesians from Spain, who conquered the original tribes (Tuatha Dé Danaan), and sent them to live underground, so that in traditional folklore, these are the Fairy People – and the leprechauns are one of them……
