St. Patrick's Day Children's Celebration - #wearyourgreenforstpats2022
We were super excited to announce our St. Patrick's Day Celebration for our younger members and friends.
We brought the fun and craic of the St. Patrick's Day parade and festivities to you!
On the big day itself March 17th at 4pm we had a St. Patrick's themed party via zoom with the fantastic Fizazzle. This hour-long event had themed storytelling, games, dances and fun. For those who couldn't attend on the day, we shared access to the recording of the various sections of the party.
All households who signed up received a party pack with green, white and orange balloons, streamers, shamrock bunting making kit, small Irish flag, clues for a treasure hunt for leprechaun's chocolate gold coins (small bag of chocolate coins per child). Each child received tattoos, stickers, pencil, and leprechaun craft. A personalised letter sent to the family provided instructions for the crafts as well as a link to downloadable themed colouring sheets, St. Patrick's Day cards, word search, recipes for shamrock scones and shamrock cookies.

A fabulous morning for walking around Joo Chiat and Tiong Bahru for the St. Patrick’s Singapore Tours. Great to catch up with everyone and also meet new Irish friends in Singapore. Excellent tour guides by Jane's Singapore Tours - what a rich and colourful history in both of these districts.

Virtual St.Patrick's Day Parade March 17 2021
At the end of February we put out a call to the Irish Community in Singapore to create a St. Patricks Day parade amongst the organisations, societies and families here. We have had a really positive response and the result lies below. With over 150 Participants reflecting the Official, Cultural, Sporting and Familial spheres of the Irish in Singapore we can think of no better way to wish everyone here, home and abroad - Là Fheile Padraig 2021.
In January 2021, 130 of us walked the more than 17,000km from Merlion Park in Singapore to Heuston Station Dublin. This event is a group event where every step counts towards the groups aim of walking home together. Enabling the Irish Community to come together with a common goal.
