St. Patrick's Day
The Irish who immigrated to the United States brought the traditions of St. Patrick's Day with them. Today there are about 33.7 million residents who claim Irish ancestry. And, there are four places in the United States called Shamrock, and nine places called Dublin. Try to find them on a map! The very first St. Patrick's Day parade in the United States was held in New York City in 1766.
