So far as I'm aware, shifting the liturgical celebration of St Patrick to a later date, because it falls in Holy Week this year, isn't doing anything to stop celebration of the 17th in all other contexts. And it's still a Bank Holiday in Ireland.
I don't think there's much need to worry about this. The next time Easter falls this early is in 2160. (Here is a list of dates, just so people can be ready in time...)
