Quiz: Test your Irishness!

Try our new quiz for a chance to win a great prize!

It’s that time of year again! Yep - time to cheer the tractors and marching bands, fiddle with the shamrock on lapels, and dust off the furry green top hats, because St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner!

Some fun facts for you about St. Patrick’s Day:

  • St. Patrick was originally from Scotland and his name was Maewyn Succat! He only became known as Patrick when he became a bishop.

  • St. Patrick’s Day parades are an American invention - the first happened in Boston in 1737, organised by 27 emigrants who missed Ireland deeply.

  • St. Patrick’s Day is also the national holiday in the Caribbean island of Montserrat - in the 17th century, a large number of Irish settled there. Given the current temperatures, where would you rather be?

  • And no, there were no snakes in Ireland, that’s just folklore.

As a 100% Irish owned family business, we at Maxol are always proud to be from this great country, but we get a little bit prouder in the run up to St. Patrick’s Day. To get you in the spirit of celebration, how would you like to win a great prize just in time for the big day itself?
