St. Paddy’s Please

Some Irish people would like us to stop saying “St.Patty’s Day” as the nickname for St.Patrick’s Day. St. Paddy’s, is acceptable as “Patty” is the an abbreviated form of Patricia – a woman’s name and St. Patrick was a man. The Dublin International Airport addressed the issue itself on its Facebook page in 2014. “Please share this simple message with your friends and relations in the United States and Canada,” a post on the page in the Gaelic language reportedly read. “Using the power of your network, hopefully we can banish the scourge of St Patty once and for all.” The meme still crops up every year on Facebook and elsewhere.
