If you’re lucky enough not to have a headache today – congratulations.

People across the world donned their favourite green outfits last night to mark St Patrick’s Day.

Niall Horan celebrated with Joe Biden while Prince William enjoyed some Guinness with the Irish Guards.

For the majority, last night entailed of a simple trip to the pub.

St Patrick’s Day celebrates Ireland’s patron saint, who is said to have brought Christianity to the island.

As Lenten restrictions are also lifted on March 17, feasting and drinking have long since been a tradition of the globally enjoyed holiday.

Last night, people sported leprechaun-style outfits, danced in Irish rugby jerseys and donned Guiness hats to mark the occasion.

Many ‘jockeys’ were spotted knocking back pints.

It wasn’t plain sailing everywhere ahead of St Patrick’s Day celebrations.

A student club night scrapped plans to host a dwarf actor dressed as a leprechaun after huge backlash.

Promoter DNA Events sent out an invite on WhatsApp encouraging people to attend the party tonight at Cargo, in Printworks in Manchester.

It read: ‘This Friday we are hosting Manchester’s biggest Paddy’s Day event at Cargo. There’s a huge club dressing, plenty of Irish hats and handouts and we’ve got our own dwarf leprechaun that will be going round the venue taking pictures all night.’
