The Luck of the Irish Lands in Canada

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - March 15, 2013) - Considered a public holiday in Newfoundland and Labrador, March 17th is a day that has grown in popularity over the years, much celebrated by many Canadians. Major cities like Toronto and Vancouver hold annual St. Patrick's Day Parades full of floats and live music. The longest-standing parade in Canada is actually the St. Patrick's Day parade in Montreal, dating back to 1984.

Often confused with the four-leaf clover thought to bring good luck, the shamrock is a known symbol of Ireland and a symbol of the Christian Trinity. Playing off of the trinity concept, itravel2000 announces its two day St. Patrick's Day Sale. Starting this weekend, travellers looking to book a qualifying trip can save in many different ways. Canadians have the opportunity to take advantage of:
