St Patrick’s Day 2008 in Cork

A flavour of the St Patrick’s Day festivities and people who attended the Parade in Cork yesterday.

Some of the Special Olympics Team took part in the parade and as I said yesterday, it was strange to see only them on the street with nobody else about. Everyone cheered them on however and clapped as they passed! The next group took at least 5 minutes to appear leaving me to wonder if the parade had already finished.

You normally don’t see Irish people waving flags about unless it’s a special occasion. St. Patrick’s Day is one of those times when the the Irish Tricolour comes out!

If there’s a buck to be made ..

Crowds lined Patrick’s Street in Cork to watch the Parade. It was crazy! To get any sort of shot I had to either hold my camera in the air and shoot blind or grab quick shots with the zoom from between the bobbing heads of those in front of me. If you were in any way uncomfortable with crowds then it wasn’t the place for you.

More tomorrow and for a few days probably.

    Thank you for your post, St. Patrick’s day for me is a big party with my friends, drinking a lot of irish beer and singing Irish songs out loud.
