Posts Tagged ‘Is it Paddy’s Day or Patty’s Day?’

To banish the curse of “St Patty’s Day”, Dublin Airport have launched a Facebook campaign to spread the word of the real name of our national day.

Not pointing at anyone in particular, {ehmmm…USA AND CANADA}, the airport posted the Facebook notice below to alert anyone who is confused about the correct pronunciation of the day.

Before you make a HUGE mistake, please remember it’s St. Paddy’s Day…with Ds…as opposed with Ts. Patty is short for Patricia…not Patrick.

On that happy note…I wish you, “Lá Fhéile Pádraig sona daoibh!” (“Happy St Patrick’s Day”)…good luck saying that!
