St Patrick's Day Gallery

A selection from the best of Irish culture curated especially for St Patrick's Day 2023 by the Department of Foreign Affairs.

Culture recounts our history, elevates our everyday, and breathes possibilities into the future.

The positive impact of Irish culture can be felt globally. In the face of political, economic and social challenges, Irish people have for centuries turned outwards and, in so doing, carried our traditions of song, story, poetry and dance across the world.
