These illustrations also appeared in Galway City Council’s special pull-out St. Patrick’s Day supplement in the current issue of the Galway Advertiser. You can also find Galway City Museum’s colouring in page of Saint Patrick banishing the snake and the Galway Cartoon Festival’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade colouring in/activity page, both drawn by me. No parades this year so get the kids to make their own!
