St Patrick’s Day is perhaps one of the world’s most loved festivals and is marked by parades of revellers dressed in green all across the globe.
Every year on March 17 people across the world mark the death of Ireland’s patron saint in the fifth century and would traditionally see religious families head to Church to remember the “Apostle of Ireland” who, legend has it, banished all snakes from the island by chasing them into the sea.
But the holiday has taken on a new meaning internationally and is now more commonly associated with pints, shamrocks and occasionally, some pretty questionable antics.
Here are some of the craziest moments from the holiday over the years, from the St Patrick’s Day “kiss bandit” to mass brawls and whip-cracking.
