Well actually it was all thanks to 229 Paddys!
That’s how many people donned the famous clothing of St.Patrick and gathered in the town today for the world record attempt.
And the news is good – they’ll be drowning the shamrock in Nancys and the rest of Ardara’s pubs tonight.
Because no official record existed before, Ardara’s attempt to set a record for the number of St Patricks gathered in one place was always going to be a winner.
But today’s attempt looks like it will last for at east a year until another town or village try to smash it next year.
