Irish people salute Cuba on Saint Patrick’s Day

Dublin, Mar 17 (Prensa Latina) Friends of Cuba in Ireland ratified their solidarity with the Caribbean island and demanded an end to the unilateral blockade imposed by the United States, on the eve of Saint Patrick’s Day, a diplomatic source said on Wednesday.

Images tweeted by Cuban Ambassador in Dublin Hugo Rene Ramos show the tribute, which included a display of Cuban flags in several sectors of the city.

‘Irish friends on the eve of the national Saint Patrick’s festivity are greeting us with Cuban flags as an expression of ratification of their permanent solidarity to end the criminal Yankee economic blockade against Cuba,’ the diplomat wrote.

Saint Patrick’s Day, which celebrates the Irish people’s patron saint, is marked on March 17 and is deeply rooted in Ireland, although the commemoration has transcended the religious environment to become a party that calls on millions of people all over the world.
