We believe sober fun on the Irish national day is a timely idea which we hope will be widely disseminated by people like you. We particularly welcome organizations and individuals interested in hosting similar events in the United States and internationally. However, our name, Sober St. Patrick’s Day®, is registered and permission to use it for any purpose is required.
