Brittany being part of the Celtic nations , we do share some of our cousins’ traditions with them, mostly with the small local Irish community over here.
Our Irish cousins celebrate St Patick’s Day in Brest city and port on the 17th of March every year. They listen to music,sing, dance and decorate their pubs with shamrocks, St Patrick’s symbol. St Patrick is known to have brought christianity to Ireland and used the shamrock to explain the holy trinity.
At school, we talked about one of their most famous cheeky elf . Do you know its name? Do you know that supernatural creature belonging to the Irish folklore? ( In Brittany, we have them too. They are called Korrigans and are sort of mischievous small dwarf-like fairies )
Dorine made a drawing to help you find out . Have a look 🙂
