At this time of year, the Irish Embassy would usually be preparing to welcome members of the Irish community and friends of Ireland in Great Britain to the Embassy throughout St Patrick’s week. This year we are planning a very different kind of celebration, and we hope you can join us for an exciting virtual St. Patrick’s Day event at 1.15pm on Wednesday 17th March.

St. Patrick's Day 2021 at the Embassy of Ireland in Great Britain.

Along with messages from an Taoiseach Micheál Martin and Ambassador Adrian O’Neill, award-winning fiddle player Aoife Ní Bhriain will lead a ‘supergroup’ of Irish and British musicians in a selection of traditional Irish tunes, recorded live at the Embassy.

We hope you can all don your green and join us virtually at lunchtime on St. Patrick's Day to mark the day.
