The Times welcomes dining, wining and entertainment news -- Has your restaurant/venue undergone a change? Do you have a special event coming up? Have you launched a special price or menu? Dining & Leisure "MAY your blessings out- number the shamrocks that grow and may trouble avoid you wherever you go,” is an age-old Irish toast eve- ryone can appreciate, Celtic ties or not! And, what better time to raise your glasses and ensure Irish jokes are off pat than on St Pad- dy’s Day, Sunday March 17? While a goodly number will be wearing the green on a day that is celebrated by more than the Irish, perhaps there are a few not so well known facts about the good saint, Patrick..... Largely responsible for con- verting Ireland to Christianity in the 4th century, some folk think him a myth. But no, St Patrick was most deﬁnitely real although facts about his life have, over time, been mingled with a fair bit of make-believe. Perhaps the ﬁrst thing to note is the man we think of as Irish to the core was not Irish at all. He was what we call British today and was actually of Roman par- entage. In fact, his arrival in Ireland was somewhat unceremonious. As a 16 year-old, named Succat, he was captured in a raid by the Irish King, Niall of the Nine Hos- tages, and sold into slavery. He then worked as a herdsman for six years on Slemish Mountain in County Antrim. After six years, Patrick escaped to France and legend has it that he dreamed the peo- ple of Ireland were calling him back, Subsequently he returned to the Emerald Isle as a Christian missionary. Today we celebrate the life of this saintly man not on his birth- day but on the day on which it is believed he died, March 17 somewhere between 460 and 490 AD. He is said to be buried in the grounds of Down Cathedral in Northern Ireland. When it comes to his con- nection with the Shamrock, once again legend has it that in attempting to explain the three- in-one principle of the Holy Trin- ity to the pagan King Laoghaire, St Patrick found the three-leafed shamrock a convenient teaching aid – The Father, The Son and The Holy Ghost – and it’s still used by Christians today. Did you know: St Patrick is credited with es- ■ tablishing the Leap Year tradi- tion of women proposing to men. Paddy slaved to be saint COME Monday, March 18 it could be that a few people will still be feeling a little ‘green’ after toasting St Patrick the day (or night) before. And no doubt, local venues will ensure St Paddy’s Day is not forgotten. However, to ensure a good night out, surrounded by good cheer(s), without taking the Craic too far, one of the best places to be is Fibber McPhees. Located on the corner of Te Irirangi Drive and Ormiston Road in Botany, Auckland, Fibber’s is a little Irish bar that’s big on quality, with good food, good beer and a good bunch of people to boot... and that’s no lie! So, forget Dutch courage – that’s all just a bunch of blarney anyway – this Saint Patrick’s Day it’s best to stick to the Fibber.
