Around the world most St. Patrick’s Day public parades and events are cancelled due to the coronavirus. However, there is one grand place where RVers will not have to worry about socially-distancing: Virtual St. Patrick’s Day Festival.
While we can’t travel this year to Ireland, we can enjoy Irish celebrations on St. Patrick’s Festival TV, free now through March 17.
The SPF TV program is hosting more than 100 events. This virtual extravaganza is showcasing Irish music, theatre, art, performance, poetry, storytelling, traditional arts, tours, food, and culture.
One featured artist is legendary author Eddie Lenihan, a great Irish storyteller and “national treasure.” He is said to be one of the few practicing “seanchaithe” (traditional Irish lore-keepers and tale-spinners) remaining in Ireland.
Dúisigh Éire! Awaken Ireland! The theme of this year’s festival “offers a clarion call … to Irish people worldwide to throw off the long, dark months and rise to embrace the brighter days ahead.” You can watch the SPF TV live stream on www.rte.ie/culture.
