There are not too many promotional materials associated with St. Patrick's Day, but we do have one piece in the collection that fits in that category.

When I was in Graduate School at Syracuse University, the focus of the St. Patrick's Day celebration occurred in the Tipperary Hill section of town. A largely Irish community, it may be the only place in the world that features a traffic signal where the green light is in the top position!
