It’s been a bizarre St. Patrick’s week this year but there is something to look forward to this Sunday – in the UK and Ireland at least, it’s Mother’s day!

Mother’s day in the UK and Ireland is celebrated on the 4th Sunday in Lent, whereas in most parts of the world Mother’s day is celebrated on the second Sunday of May. The tradition in the British Isles is said to come from early Christian times when children who had gone to work as domestic servants were given a day off to visit their ‘mother Church’. Inevitably, the return to the ‘mother Church’ became an occasion for family reunions and thus Mothers day was born.

Mother's Day - Free Shipping - Code MUM

To celebrate this Christian tradition, I am offering FREE SHIPPING WORLDWIDE for online orders of Saint Patrick’s Plate until midnight this Sunday 22 March. Simply go online to and insert the discount code MUM in the required field to get the offer.

With travel restrictions and social distancing in place at the moment, what better way to tell your Mum, or indeed a Mum that you know, that you’re thinking about her this mothering Sunday. Happy Mother’s day !
