Google Doodle: St Patrick’s day marked with shamrocks playing fiddles
The fiddle-wielding shamrocks on the Google homepage are a reminder for those not already stationed at the pub with a glass of Guinness at their elbow – it’s St Patrick’s Day.
Named for the patron saint of Ireland who gaveth Christianity and tooketh away snakes, 17 March is a public holiday in Ireland but celebrated outside of work hours in the rest of the world, often with Guinness.
The Irish artist Eamonn O’Neill designed the animation after Google Doodle head Ryan Germick asked him to submit an idea about two weeks ago. He pitched four “simple” ideas, of which an animation of shamrocks playing traditional Irish instruments was chosen.
The Dún Laoghaire Institute of Art, Design and Technology graduate told the Irish Times that it was the first time an Irish national had been asked to commemorate the holiday.
