Watch: Tourists try to explain St. Patrick's Day
It would seem that maybe we haven't quite gotten across the real reason for St. Patrick's Day, according to tourists we interviewed outside the Guinness Storehouse.
Independent.ie interviewed tourists outside the Guinness Storehouse in the run up to St. Patrick's Day 2015 with a simple question - what is St. Patrick's Day about?
We wanted to see if those not from Ireland knew why the world turns green for twenty-four hours, and the answers were quite varied, ranging from a succinct explanation of St. Patrick banishing the snakes to "is it something to do with the Easter rising?"
Watch the video above and let us know - how would you explain St. Patrick's Day to someone not from Ireland?
