One of the greatest joys of this once-religious holiday is drinking copious quantities of alcohol without judgement, in celebration of our country’s patron saint; and as everyone knows, simply drinking is not enough. It has to get weird. Check out some of the most innovative and plain ridiculous drinking games from around the world below, many of which can be customised for St. Patrick’s.

St. Patrick’s weekend – preferably not Paddy’s, and definitely not Patty’s – is basically the RAG Week for the world at this stage.
