Saint Patrick’s Day is a public holiday in the Republic of Ireland,[10] Northern Ireland,[11] the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador (for provincial government employees), and the British Overseas Territory of Montserrat. It is also widely celebrated by the Irish diaspora around the world, especially in Great Britain, Canada, the United States, Argentina, Australia, and New Zealand. Saint Patrick’s Day is celebrated in more countries than any other national festival.[12] Modern celebrations have been greatly influenced by those of the Irish diaspora, particularly those that developed in North America. For the undocumented Irish, it is a difficult time, as they cannot return home for family visits. It is hoped that President Trump can solve this overdue issue for the Irish people. Brexit and the European Union, along with the rise of the nationalist vote in the north of Ireland, are fast tracking the discussions on variants of an agreed Ireland, bringing together Catholic, Protestant and Dissenter, within Europe, as an alternative choice to being part of UK independence from Europe.
