La Fheile Phadraig i gCorcaigh

La Fheile Phadraig i gCorcaigh

‘Se seo Lá Fhéile Phadraig inniu. Chuaigh me isteach sa chathair (gan an chlann) chun féachaint ar an paráid ach ni fhacha me moran de. Bhi an meid sin daoine ann. Ni raibh paisti in ann aon rud a fheisceant in aon chor. Bhi sé nios éasca agus bhain me nios mo taineamh as pictuiri a thogaint den lucht féachanta!

D’fhagas 50 noiméad tar éis do tosnu. Bhi my lamha tuirseach o beith ag chuir my camara os mo ceann agus chonaic me nios mo den paraid sa bhaile anseo ar an riomhaire… Ta suas le 300 griangraf togtha agam inniu ach nil an t-am agam obair ortha anocht. B’fheider i gceann cupla la. Nilim cinnte an mbeidh me ag dul ar ais an bhlain seo chugainn. 🙁

PS. Go raibh maith agat!

I’m delighted with my grasp of Irish having stopped studying it 21 years ago! I thought that the weather was reason enough to endure the crowds and the kids were able to take turns on my shoulders. The normal run of events is having someone’s umbrella obscure your view while water from the offending umbrella drips down your neck and the lazy wind would rather go through you than around you.

My 4GB card rand out of space so I was furiously deleting individual shots manually……….obviously all by scouting training to ‘Bí Ullamh’ did not pay off!

Haha, I filled a 4GB card too. Just before I left, a woman with her 2 kids pushed ahead of me. She apologised saying the kids were disappointed not seeing the parade. I wish them good luck getting to the front of the crowd but I don’t think they managed it.

If I do go to the parade next year I’ll bring a step ladder!
