Poll: Are you planning to go out partying this St Patrick's Day?

It’s not for everybody – but maybe it is for you.

HAVE FUN IF you are off work today – but how will you do so?

While the St Patrick’s Day festival around Ireland is a huge tourist draw, the day itself also attracts criticism for the focus on alcohol-related activities.

How will you be celebrating St Patrick’s Day?

Poll Results:

Staying at home entirely (5340)
Going to a parade but that's it (1901)
Will have a few this afternoon, but home early (1166)
I already did - last night - and this poll is way too early (799)
I'm definitely going out partying for the day/night (486)
