The Wearing of the Green by Mike Cronin/Daryl Adair


This is a comprehensive history of St Patrick’s day and the parades.

It is surprising that the origin of the parades were the streets of New York among the newly emigrated Irish protestants.

Great book for picking up on your Paddy’s day trivia before the day itself.
