Do you have a special St. Patrick's Day memory, a tale to tell about March 17, or some big news about Paddy's Day 2022? Share it with the global Irish on IrishCentral Storytellers!

St. Patrick's Day, Ireland's national holiday on March 17, is a phenomenon celebrated around the world, but to the Irish and Irish-at-heart, it's an extra very special day.

This St. Patrick's Day, we want to hear from you, our global audience, to find out what March 17th means to you. 

We're calling on our global Irish to submit a memory, funny story, or snippet of news to IrishCentral Storytellers explaining what St. Patrick's Day means to you and why it's such a special time of the year. 

After St. Patrick's Day, the team here at IrishCentral will select our favorite story and the winner will receive an Irish Heritage Tree, their very own tree planted in Ireland by IrishCentral.
