st paddy’s day

St Patrick's Day is probably the biggest day of the year in our Emerald Isle for hitting the stores to buy alcohol.

Let's be real here, we're a nation of drink-connoisseurs; we'll be in the pub all day or at some mad gaff with a keg.

Stores like Aldi have been recently producing some of Ireland's best quality and cheapest gin, but they've only gone and topped themselves with their latest product.

Aldi Ireland has OFFICIALLY announced that it will be selling…wait for it…shamrock infused gin. Just in time for St. Patricks's Day; we know exactly what we'll be polluting ourselves with this year.

Made by Listoke Distillery in Co. Louth, Tower Gin’s 'Shamrock Infused Gin' will be on sale from Thursday, February 28 for a price of €19.99/50cl, so banishing all of those snakes won't break the bank.

Tower Gin’s 'Shamrock Infused Gin' has been distilled in the traditional London Dry style, with all ingredients, including the fresh shamrock, coming from the highways and byways of Co. Louth.

The refreshing gin has a mild earthy taste from the shamrock flavour, and has rosehips and sweet orange flavour to match. Oh, and the gin is genuinely green, in honour of St. Paddy himself.

The gin makers have written an adorable poem for it's customers to enjoy;

"We once made a gin by The Tower, distilled with an Irish green power, some citrus and spice, some tonic and ice, from Ireland’s delicate wild shamrock flower!"

Adorable. We're so excited to give this one a try, it would be our honour to drink gin for the sake of our country.

Only one week left until we can get our hands on the gincredibly patriotic alcohol beverage, and 24 days until the biggest day of the Irish calendar. Get down to Aldi before the snakes get their paws on it first.



It's not surprising that people around the world want to spend St. Patrick's Day in Dublin and will travel from the far corners to get here. 

Because let's face it from the parades to the atmosphere, there really is no beating it. 

There is a longstanding tradition of celebrities making the grand trip to the Emerald Isle on the big day and this year it was former boyband star and ex-husband of Jessica Simpson who caught the Paddy's day bug. 

Basically, a 90s superstar was here and we were living for it. 

However, the singer-turned-reality-star went to impressive lengths to not only conceal his identity but also get into the St. Patrick's spirit. 

The 42-year-old was snapped strolling down Grafton Street with his wife, Vanessa, and some friends donning a full face of paint, a ginger beard and a leprechaun hat (we are also appreciating the green hints on his runners). 

Because if you can't do it on Paddy's Day in Dublin then when can you. 

The star was also spotted flying into Dublin airport on Tuesday where fans were excited to get pics with the star. 

While they were out soaking up the atmosphere in the capital yesterday, on Wednesday they enjoyed a trip to the Guiness Storehouse as well as dinner and drinks at the Bank Bar on Dame Street. 

We reckon he's probably feeling a bit worse for wear today, but sure who isn't?
