Jobs for the boys


If you say "jobs for the boys" you're referring to the fact that people in
positions of power sometimes use their power to give jobs to their friends or
family members.

Henry deserved the position, but it was a case of jobs for the boys, as usual, and one of the
boss's old school friends got it instead of Henry.

The new government has promised to stop the old system of jobs for the boys when it comes
to appointing departmental heads.

Saint Patrick's Day
        Saint Patrick's Day (Irish: Lá Fhéile Pádraig) is a yearly holiday
            celebrated on 17 March. It is named after Saint Patrick (circa
            AD 387–461), the most commonly recognized of the patron
            saints of Ireland. It began as a purely Catholic holiday and
            became an official feast day in the early 1600s. However, it
            has gradually become more of a secular celebration of Ireland's
            culture.

        Saint Patrick's feast day, as a kind of national day, was already
            being celebrated by the Irish in Europe in the ninth and tenth
            centuries. In later times he become more and more widely known
            as the patron of Ireland.Saint Patrick's feast day was finally
            placed on the universal liturgical calendar in the Catholic Church
            due to the influence of Waterford-born Franciscan scholar Luke
            Wadding[7] in the early 1600s.

        In 1903, Saint Patrick's Day became an official public holiday in
            Ireland. This was thanks to the Bank Holiday (Ireland) Act
            1903, an act of the United Kingdom Parliament introduced by
            Irish MP James O'Mara.[10] The first Saint Patrick's Day
            parade held in the Irish Free State was held in Dublin in 1931
            and was reviewed by the then Minister of Defence Desmond
            Fitzgerald. Although secular celebrations now exist, the holiday
            remains a religious observance in Ireland, for both the Roman
            Catholic Church and the Church of Ireland.In the mid-1990s the
            Irish government began a campaign to use Saint Patrick's Day to
            showcase Ireland and its culture.

        The first Saint Patrick's Festival was held on 17 March 1996. In
            1997, it became a three-day event, and by 2000 it was a four-
            day event. By 2006, the festival was five days long; more than
            675,000 people attended the 2009 parade. Overall 2009's five
            day festival saw close to 1 million visitors, who took part in
            festivities that included concerts, outdoor theatre
            performances, and fireworks.
