Google's Doodle of the Day for Saint Patrick's Day 2020 is the Cliffs of Moher

Today, 17th March, is the feast day of Ireland's patron saint (one of three actually) Saint Patrick and it has been marked with a doodle on Google's search pages of Ireland's Cliffs of Moher.

I know that the Cliffs of Moher are one of the most famous and iconic places in Ireland but I do find it interesting that Saint Patrick never visited the cliffs, nor did he actually visit County Clare.

According to local tradition in County Clare, Saint Patrick blessed the county from across the River Shannon before heading to the north of Ireland.

It's just an observation and I have added my own sunset image from the Cliffs of Moher above.

Saint Patrick's Day parades have been cancelled all over Ireland, and all over the world due to, well you undoubtedly know it's the coronavirus / COVID-19.

Tourist attractions, pubs and most shops have shut. Today though the church bells rang out at 11:00 to mark what would have been the start of parades in many towns across Ireland - press play below to hear those.

When all of this is over, do join me on a photography tour in Ireland and in the meantime stop by and say hello, ask me some questions about Ireland or join one of my online photography sessions coming soon.
