The Irish Coastal Club of Westerly Presents: Why St. Patrick?
Who exactly was St. Patrick and why do we honor him every year on March 17th?
Please join Liz Kading & David Iler in a lively exploration of the history, mythology, & enduring legacy of Ireland’s patron saint. Through lecture and music, we’ll use the latest scholarship to answer such questions as: did St. Patrick really drive the snakes out of Ireland? What is corned beef and why do we eat it on St. Patrick’s Day? Did St. Patrick have a wife?! & much more!
This program is free & open to the public, & includes a spread of Irish foods & goodies courtesy of the Irish Coastal Club.
