St Patrick’s Day marks the true start of the Lazy Days season. It’s a time when the brave don their first mini-skirts, campsites re-open their gates, the clocks spring forward yielding precious extra hours of daylight and a myriad of festivals and celebrations happen around the country to kick start our senses after the winter lull.
