Saint Patrick's Day has come to be associated with everything Irish: anything green and gold, shamrocks and luck. The Irish are descendants of the ancient Celts, but the Vikings, Normans and English contributed to the ethnic nature of the people.
Centuries of English rule largely eliminated the use of the ancient Gaelic, or Irish, language. Most Irish are either Catholics or Protestants (Anglicans, members of the Church of England).
