Bishops decide to celebrate Paddy's Day on March 15th
Wednesday July 18 2007
Ireland's Catholic bishops have decided to move the church's celebration of St Patrick's Day to March 15th next year.
The decision has been taken because March 17th coincides with the start of Holy Week.
The church will now celebrate the feast day two days early, but the decision is unlikely to have any affect on traditional St Patrick's Day celebrations, which will almost certainly go ahead as normal on March 17th.
If there was an organisation in place this was a chance to inagurate Paddys Day, a day for all the Irish (no religion required).
Once the former slave was out of the picture he'd be gone forever.
