Interesting facts about St. Patrick’s Day

Why do we celebrate it in Australia?

In Australia, the Irish were among the first Europeans to settle in the country.

More than 300,000 other Irish settlers migrated to Australia between 1840 and 1914. Many left Ireland to escape the famine in their country.

Now, around 30 per cent of Australian’s are believed to have some Irish ancestry.
