2015 St. Patrick’s Day in Blarney


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 Men’s Shed win best St. Patrick’s Day Parade float

Blarney Men's Shed

The Men’s Shed in Blarney constructed this fabulous float for the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Blarney yesterday. It was voted the best float of the day by a panel who reviewed the parade.

The cart was made by members of the Shed so, as the announcer in the village said, it may be the newest cart pulled by a horse in the country now.

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!

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.

Edit: more photos here and here, uploaded by Blarney Blog.
