FM Observers Celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day With A Surprise Trip To Ireland

March 17th, 2019 | by Johnnny

St. Patrick would ring a bell to begin Ireland’s famous Shamrock Beer Fest!

Cork City, Ireland – Because many FM Observers have such strong ties to Ireland, we decided to take a trip and celebrate St. Patrick’s day with the Irish.

While visiting with Corkonians here in Cork City, we’ve learned many things about Saint Patricius, which actually means “patron of the citizens”.

Besides being the patron saint of Ireland, Saint Patrick brought Christianity, shamrocks, and green beer to this famous island.

Patricius also rid the island of druids and snakes back in the Fifth Century, which both were a big problem until Patrick showed up.

Everyone in our FMO group that was lucky enough to travel here really enjoyed hiking up to the top of Mount Patrick to see where the famous patron saint used to go camping and drink green beer during occasional 40-day fasts.

After we return back to Fargo, we’all plan on helping out with the sand bagging efforts to save the city, since we’re hearing that the Red River Diversion Project is not quite completely finished yet.
