The Joy of Connection
with St Patrick's Festival
The Joy of Connection
The theme of St Patrick’s Festival 2022 is Connections/Naisc and our ambitious aim is not only to connect families, friends and communities across Ireland but to bring our events to our global tribe of 80 million through the magic of SPF TV. This virtual TV Station hosted at stpatricksfestival.ie will offer front row seats to a wealth of programmes that explore Ireland and the Irish from March 16 to 20.
We have more than 50 events on-demand, free and globally accessible for everyone to enjoy, from anywhere on SPF TV. We will release new programmes every day. Enjoy sessions and hooleys, virtual tours, conversations with many well-known faces, and a stunning array of poetry, performance, art, literature, architecture, community projects, storytelling, films and more.
Join us from wherever you are as we invite our diaspora across the world to reconnect and take a front row seat at the Festival to enjoy this uniquely Irish experience.
