This St Patrick’s Day will be different than most. We can’t be together the way we’d want to, but that doesn’t mean we can’t still celebrate what it means to be Irish! At Póg we’re proud to be Irish and our Irishness is something we love sharing with the world! Our green Pógs connect you to Ireland and are a piece of Irish charm you can carry with you everywhere you go! Why not send someone a Póg this Patrick’s Day to help them feel that Irish connection no matter where they are!
We reached out to Irish people living all over the world and asked them what it is that makes them feel connected to home wherever they are!
Tom, 60, Dar es Salaam, Tanzania:
"Connecting with other Irish expats, reading Irish newspapers, and watching Irish matches helps to bring a little bit of that Irish magic to whatever country you're in. You don't have to be in Ireland to feel like you're at home"
Aisling, 26, Melbourne, Australia:
"A good cup of tea and a packet of cheese and onion Tayto crisps are enough to make me feel like I’m back home even when I’m on the other side of the world!"
Eva, 22, Madrid, Spain:
"When my Mum found out I was moving to Spain, she decided to get me a Claddagh ring for Christmas so that I would have a reminder of home to carry with me everywhere I went. Every time I look at my ring it reminds me of all the people back home that I love"
It’s the little things that keep us connected to home no matter where we are.
Happy St Patrick’s Day!
