Google Doodle

Even Google is getting in on the act today

Thanks, you guys.


AS HAS NOW become something of a custom, Google has joined in with the St Patrick’s Day festivities today in its own way.

Today’s Google homepage features this rather lovely Claddagh-inspired design to mark the events taking place around the world to mark Ireland’s patron saint celebrations.

The design features two hands holding a heart with a crown place on top of it, over a stained-glass effect.

Google has created more than one thousand ‘doodles’ over the past sixteen years to mark holidays, anniversaries, and the lives of famous people.

Thanks guys.
