When did tráthnóna become evening??

In or around St Patrick's Day.

Strictly speaking, tráthnóna is the time between noon and nightfall. By the end of March, sunset occurs at almost 8PM in Ireland, which is well into the evening for most of us, but the definition of "evening" in English is not exactly precise.
