With one month to go before St Patrick’s Day, Irish pub chain O’Neill’s has come up with a website to give Irish & non-Irish party goers alike their guide to ‘feeling green’. Through, would-be Celtic converts can find out what their Irish name is, download their personalised Irish passport and swot up on their blarney so they are prepared for ‘the craic’ on 17 March.

Over 70 million people worldwide claim Irish heritage, which makes St Patrick’s Day one of the biggest parties of the year, and celebrations run across a month period, not just on the day itself – meaning it’s vital that people who want to celebrate the period get their act together and get ready.

The launch of kick-starts preparations for St Pat’s celebrations, with time to learn the words to Molly Malone, Irish Rover and Whiskey in the Jar, plus book a day’s holiday to ensure work doesn’t get in the way of a good party.

O’Neill’s has created a holiday request form which, with the luck of the Irish, will be signed off by the boss quicker than Brian O’Driscoll slicing through the opposition’s defence. Plus, a special ‘Out of office’ message can be copied from the site, meaning people booking the day off work to celebrate can make colleagues green with envy.

With recipes from top Irish chef Paul Rankin, e-card invites and a competition to win a VIP night at O’Neill’s also featured within, there’s only one place to visit to get ready for St Patrick’s Day.
