Boyband The Wanted embraced the Irish spirit by bartending at a St. Patrick's Day party in Los Angeles over the weekend (16Mar13).

The I Found You hitmakers, whose own Siva Kaneswaran hails from the Irish capital of Dublin, headed to Rock and Reilly's Irish Pub in West Hollywood on Saturday (16Mar13) to join the festivities ahead of the big day on 17 March (13).

With their faces painted green, the singers took over the bar and created special themed cocktails for punters.

In a post on the band's page, the singers tweeted, "Happy St Paddy's Day!" and shared the special Irish blessing, "May your troubles be less, your blessings be more, and nothing but happiness come through your door."

All the pub's takings during the party were donated to educational charity Pencils of Promise.
