It may be over 300 miles as the crow flies between Ipswich and Dublin but that doesn’t mean that Suffolk won’t be marking St Patrick’s Day.
St Patrick’s Day is traditionally the feast day of St Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland.
It is marked all over the world including here in Suffolk where a number of the county’s pubs, bars and restaurants will be holding events for the day.
Ipswich even has its own Irish-themed bars in the form of The Shamrock in Tacket Street.
Globally, hundreds of buildings will be celebrating the day by turning green.
