St Patrick’s Day seems to have grown into a massive international global event. I remember, while a teen, first hearing something about the 17th March celebration in New York. I think that may have been the only event of note outside of Ireland. Now it’s taken on a life of his own… carnival atmospheres abound and it seems to have turned into an excuse for week-long celebrations all around the world.
I have to confess, I’ve never gone to the Dublin Parade as I’m naturally averse to throngs of people but for the last few years we’ve actually even been involved with our local village parade. This year is different, we won’t be doing boerewors rolls (traditional South African beef sausage rolls) so I plan to take the camera and just walk along. Until I show you this year’s photos I’ll leave you with a few photos taken since the blog has been going…
PS – I’ve thrown in a few happy Dublin pics as well… just to add a bit of colour!
