RESIDENTS at a care home in Falmouth have celebrated Saint Patrick's Day with staff decorating the home and listening to Irish music.

Residents and staff at Falmouth Court in Falmouth celebrated all things Irish for St Patrick’s Day. The home was decorated with shamrocks and everyone dressed in green to mark the day.

Held on March 17, Saint Patrick's Day actually observes the death of St Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland, but the day has come to be a huge celebration of Irish heritage and culture.
