     The Island of Montserrat in the Caribbean celebrates St. Patrick’s Day as a national holiday (as does Ireland) and has a full week of festivities.  A traveler to the island will have his/her passport stamped with a shamrock and will be greeted with a banner that proclaims “Cead Mile Failte.”  The flag has a woman (representing Ireland) dressed in green and a harp on it.  Many surnames and town names reflect the Irish influence of the slaves sent there by Cromwell from Galway, Kerry and other Irish counties.
