I have never been to Ireland but I have visited Chicago several times.

Chicago is also known for its St. Patrick’s Day celebration.

 

Saint Patrick was not born in Ireland anyway. He was born in Scotland to Roman parents. Taken as a slave to Ireland, he lived there, escaped, and later returned as a missionary, bring the Christian Gospel to Ireland.
