Everyone loves a parade!
Here are some photos from the 2014 St Patrick’s Day parade through our village of Graiguenamanagh, Ireland.
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’? 😀
Enjoy the photos!
Transport of all types was on show:
