St. Patrick’s Day Events This Week
The Irish community in Slovakia is getting ready for its annual celebration of St. Patrick’s Day (17 March), with a rich programme of events and concerts to produce a fun atmosphere.
On Thursday 14 March, in Bratislava you can enjoy a beer-tasting session with Celtic music from Keltieg at Cafe Scherz, starting at 6 pm, while in Nitra there is rich programme of events at the UKF, followed by live music and a quiz in the evening.
Things start heating up on Friday with a St. Patrick’s Day party at Goblins Bar in Bratislava, where a perfect atmosphere is guaranteed (don’t drink too much of the green Guinness!).
The St, Patrick’s celebrations culminate on Saturday 16th at Eurovea shopping centre in Bratislava, with concerts from 12.00. Keltic Kurrent will be opening the show (our very own editor in chief John Boyd on guitar and the highly talented Zuzana Cenkerova on violin) with some lively Irish and Celtic songs. They will be followed by the Raw Bishops and The Dlahas, with performances also by Bratislava-based Irish dance group Avalon.
So don’t miss out and get along to Eurovea or any of the other events to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in true style.
