Mother's Day in Ireland

Mother's Day in Ireland

Mother's Day in Ireland falls in March, unlike the American Mother's Day, which is held in May.

The Irish Mother's Day stems from the mid-lent Sunday, when the Church gave the faithful a break from the strict adherence to lent (though in Ireland this has been transferred to St Patrick's Day).

Traditionally, on Mother's Day, special masses would be held in the Mother Church of the diocese or in honour of the Mary, Mother of Christ. Nowadays in Ireland, Mother's Day is celebrated with cards and gifts and held as a special day for mothers. Why not treat your mother to a trip to the ‘auld country' this Mother's Day?
