St Paddy’s Day revellers don their favourite green and hit the Guinness from Newcastle to New York tonight as the world commemorates Ireland’s patron saint

Revellers across the world painted the streets green to celebrate St. Patrick’s day today from Newcastle to New York.

In Ireland’s capital, a sea of green and orange crowds of half a million people took to Dublin’s streets to take part in the festive parade while boozy revellers enjoyed pints of Guinness.  

The annual parade in New York City – which bills itself as the world’s largest and oldest – paid homage to Ireland’s patron saint and celebrated the deep Irish history interwoven with American culture. 

Meanwhile the Princess of Wales enjoyed sips of ‘the black stuff’ with Prince William at the Irish Guards’ St Patrick’s Day Parade in Aldershot.
