We might all be inside once again this St. Patrick's Day, but that doesn't mean there's nothing for us to do.
So come on, dress yourself head to toe in blinding green, adorn yourself with those shamrocks sprouting up from a nearby field, and stay at home where there'll be a feast of content for you to tune into. Here's a rundown of what you can watch this St. Patrick's Day.
'St Patrick's Festival'
SPF TV @ 6.30 PM
The iconic Guinness Storehouse in Dublin will take centre stage during this unique St. Patrick's Day festival event. Hosted by Tara Stewart and featuring some of Ireland's biggest talent Pillow Queens, Gemma Dunleavy, and Adam Mohamed, the event is sure to spark joy in all who tune in for free.
'The Late Late Show'
RTÉ One @ 9.30 PM
Taking place on a Wednesday for the very first time in its near 50-year run, 'The Late Late Show St Patrick's Day Special' will be an edition of the show that we haven't yet seen. From Tokyo to Rio de Janeiro, Cape Town to Moscow via New York, the one-off Wednesday evening show will host the trad session to end all trad sessions. Expect a few familiar faces to appear too.
'The Mary Wallopers Save Paddy’s Day'
YouTube @ 9 PM
Dundalk folk heroes the Mary Wallopers are promising to "save" St. Patrick's Day 2021, and we have to say we are intrigued as to what madness the lads will be pulling out of their pub. Be sure to tune in Wednesday night to see what the three musicians who have fused 'Wayne's World' with Irish ballads have in store for us.
'The Rising Sons - Luke Kelly Tribute'
TG4 @ 11.40 PM
TG4 are hosting a very special gig on what would have been Luke Kelly's 80th birthday. The socially-distanced gig will feature George Murphy and The Rising Sons, who felt they couldn't allow the occasion to pass without paying homage to the quintessential Irish folk musician and singer.
'A St Patrick's Festival Celebration'
RTÉ One @ 6.30 PM
RTÉ One will be hosting a range of St. Patrick's Day celebrations throughout the day from 1 pm with highlights from the virtual edition of the parade. In the evening, Baz Ashmawy will be taking over the reins during a night promising music, dance, poetry, visual arts, comedy, and plenty of craic, featuring Soulé and the Hot House Flowers.
'Eating with the Enemy'
Virgin Media One @ 9 PM
Ireland's newest TV show has proven to be a very provocative affair - which is great to see. Each episode sees two diners are paired up with someone who has opposing world views, which sparks plenty of debate and a fair few awkward moments. So far the series has covered topics such as polyamorous relationships, the Catholic church, and opposing views on former US President Donald Trump.
'Caroline Flack: Her Life and Death'
Channel 4 @ 9 PM
This Wednesday there will be a special tribute made to the 'Love Island' TV presenter. 'Caroline Flack: Her Life and Death' is the first documentary to be released following the 40-year-old's tragic death over a year ago, and will feature rare photos from her childhood, and interviews with her former ITV colleagues Olly Murs and Dermot O'Leary.
'Operation Varsity Blues: The College Admissions Scandal'
If you're looking for an intriguing new docuseries to watch this St. Patrick's Day, then this is one certain to have everyone talking. 'Operation Varsity Blues' comes from the same people who brought us 'FYRE Festival' and 'Tiger King', and is based around real conversations recreated from FBI wiretaps. Rick Singer is the mastermind at the centre of the shocking 2019 college admissions scandal, and here's how it all went down.
Shamrave.ie @ 5 PM
And finally, 'Shamrave' is a virtual EDM music festival taking place this Wednesday, all for a very worthy cause. Promoting EDM artists in lockdown as well as helping to support Make-A-Wish Ireland, all proceeds from the event will be donated to the charity. Check out all of the details at the link above.
