Roots of Tradition: Saint Patrick’s day is held in honor of Saint Patrick, the missionary who brought Christianity to the Irish people in the 400’s AD. Erin Go Braugh is perhaps the most common Irish term you will hear. It means “Ireland Forever” . Did You Know? Over 34 million Americans are of Irish descent. That’s almost nine times the population of Ireland!
