Early celebrations for St Patrick’s Day bridged the gap between young and old at St Patrick’s Irish Club in Leamington on Tuesday.
Children from St Joseph’s Primary School in Whitnash entertained a crowd of around 140 elderly people at the club’s weekly senior citizens’ lunch for the town’s Irish people, which this week saw the club fully decked out for the national patron saint’s day.
Celebrations continue at the club off Adelaide Road all weekend - and of course on St Patrick’s Day (Monday March 17) - with live Rugby 6 Nations on Saturday, football on Sunday and live Irish music on both evenings; mass at 11am on Monday, followed by the distribution of the Shamrock and a bar (with plenty of Guinness) and live music from noon until late. Free entry. To find out more, call 420265.
