The Irish Village
17 March, 2018
The third installment of The Irish Village is to be held on 17 March at the Ocean View Court and adjoining terrace area in The Arcade at Cyberport in celebration of Ireland’s National Day – St Patrick’s Day. St Patrick’s Day is marked with parades and festivals in almost every city across the globe. This year’s event falls on a Saturday and a large indoor/outdoor venue will showcase all that is wonderful about Ireland. From 12 noon onwards, enjoy a full carvery lunch while the band Dargle play a traditional Irish music session. Green popcorn, face painters and bouncy castles will fill the kids’ play area and Echoes of Erin will be providing classes and performances in the art of Irish dancing. In the evening, there will be a tribute to the late great Dolores O’Riordan (The Cranberries) with the highlight of the night when Dargle take to the stage at 8pm. For those worried they might miss the rugby, there will also be live televised broadcast of Ireland v England Six Nations rugby encounter. A special food menu will be running throughout the night featuring great Irish produce whilst the bars will be stocked handsomely – this year we have over 80 different Irish Whiskies plus some unique Irish Craft Gin’s on offer. The Irish Village we will be supporting the charity Darkness into Light.
The Irish Village is supported by The Arcade at Cyberport, The St Patrick’s Society of Hong Kong and part of The Hong Kong & Macau Irish Festival 2018.
