Join in the jig at O'Neill's for St Patrick's Day

First published in News

GO green and celebrate St Patrick's Day this year at a Worcester pub while raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support.

The traditional Irish celebration will take place at O'Neill's pub in St Nicholas Street on Monday, March 17.

Events during the day will see punters asked to not only support the cancer charity but also sign a petition to make March 17 a national bank holiday.

Locals in Worcester are also invited to create their very own pledge photo or video at O'Neill's.

Jude Price, manager at O'Neill's Worcester, said: "People in Worcester and across the UK love celebrating St Patrick's Day, with hundreds of guests turning out at our pub each year for a few pints of Guiness, to enjoy a hearty Irish stew, to wear a big hat and soak up the craic."

On the day the pub will be open from 10am and there will be live music during the day from Bang on the Ear, Keith Slater and the Ex Presidents.

Those wanted to join the petition should visit where they will be redirected to the government petition page to leave their e-signature. To see the petition put the Houses of Parliament it requires 100,000 signatures. So far 1,386 have signed the petition.
