The St Patrick’s Day Parade 2013 in Blarney

St Patrick

Just a few photos from the short but colourful and noisy St Patrick’s Day Parade in Blarney this year. This parade proved more popular than other years as cars parked as far away as the park I live in. I don’t remember that ever happening before!

Well done to everyone who took part!

Christmas on Panna

Christmas is upon us again and the lights and decorations are going up around the city. This is on Patrick’s Street, Cork a few days ago when we wandered around.

St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Blarney

I took part in the St. Patrick’s Day Parade here in Blarney today along with my son and wife. We walked with the Community Preschool group and I am utterly amazed at the stamina of young kids! Little 3 and 4 year olds walked around Blarney and still had energy left to play with bubbles at the end!

What a wonderful day. I’m exhausted. Here’s a few photos I took.

Big smile for the Parade!

I think it’s safe to say this was the biggest smile of St. Patrick’s Day Parade 2008 for me. Nobody in the crowd was smiling anyway. They were all too squashed in or straining to see over the heads of those in front.

I can see the parade!

Some people go to all lengths to watch the St. Patrick’s Day Parade as these kids show.

Congrats to my friends John and Ann on the birth of their son Caelin yesterday. You’re lives are going to change *so much* but you’re going to have a great time with the little guy!
