2015 St. Patrick’s Day in Blarney

2015-03-17-0948-m

A few photos from the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Blarney today. It was a fabulous day for the parade. The sun was shining and it was warm. The parade went off with barely a hitch (one of the classic cars needed a push at one point) and it was great fun to watch. My favourite would have to be the toilet one by Blarney Drain Services! I was going to say it was a float but saying “toilet float” makes me feel ill.

Blarney Castle in the Snow

Snow fell last night in Ireland and everything came to a halt as people all over the country gasped in wonder at the strange white stuff on the ground. Thankfully it looks like it won’t last. We’re not equipped to deal with this sort of weather at all!

Blarney Castle opened later than usual but the paths were all cleared so of course I had to go tramping away in the snow covered grass..
