Our next major day of celebration is St. Patrick's Day especially if you're of Irish Origin - which a lot of the citizens of this town are.
In the 17th century, the founder of Peterborough was commissioned by the then Government of Upper Canada to bring a boatload of Irish citizens to settle in this area. Ireland at that time was in the middle of a potato famine.
The evidcence of their settlement can be seen by the names of communities near us e.g. Monaghan, Douro, and street names e.g. Dublin
Now I don't have a drop of Irish blook in me. My family emigrated from Holland, so my blood is totally Dutch. But that doesn't mean I can't celebrate with the Irish.
