Everyone loves a parade!

Here are some photos from the 2014 St Patrick’s Day parade through our village of Graiguenamanagh, Ireland.

 Mount Leinster Rangers  hurling  cups

The Mount Leinster Rangers are in the final! Will they come home with another cup?

The Paddy’s Day parade was held on Sunday, because today a local hurling team, the Mount Leinster Rangers, is in the final in Croke Park! It’s all very exciting, & we wish them the best.

Update: Well, the team played a hard game, but didn’t win. They will still be welcomed home as heroes, because making it to the final is in itself a huge achievement. Well done, lads!

It was a fun parade this year, with a steam tractor joining the other vintage tractors, fab performances by children’s groups & marching bands, fun floats, & of course the obligatory breakdown of one of the vintage cars :-O

There was transport of all kinds represented- as well as the tractors & cars there was a pony & cart, bikes, motorbikes, firetrucks, a digger & more. Sure, where else would you want to be on Paddy’s Weekend other than Graiguenamanagh, the ‘village of the monks’? ๐Ÿ˜€

 

Enjoy the photos!

 

Transport of all types was on show:

 

ย Thankfully there was only one drink driver:

 Bike Hire & O'Hara's beer

When this lady, Miss Rosie, showed up in the parade with her bottle of Locally brewed O’Hara’s beer, we worried about possibly tipsy biking ๐Ÿ˜‰ Pic: GraigueBikeHire

Cute alert! Happy performers & marchers ahead ๐Ÿ™‚

*Some* of these people aren’t quite as cute, but that’s okay ๐Ÿ˜‰

And I mustn’t forget the vintage!

I don’t know about you, but for me, this guy’s suit wins the parade! Love it! Hope you enjoyed this sample of Graiguenamanagh‘s St Patrick’s day parade. Maybe we’ll see you there next year!
