Some Paddy’s Day Photos

I went for a lovely walk down in Courtmacsherry on St. Patrick’s Day. It was really cold and windy, which you can see from some of the slightly blurred flags in the above photograph.
We saw a procession of boats in the water that were done up with some flags, which was very festive.
As we walked through the village to the beach we passed people putting the finishing touches to their floats as the start time for the parade approached.
Fair dues to the musicians that played on the stage, it was so cold that I’m surprised their fingers weren’t frozen. I have a feeling that a lot of people were taking refuge in pubs!Shortly after the parade was due to start in earnest we walked back towards the car which was at the edge of the village. I noticed that one house had really got into the St. Patrick’s Day spirit with a lovely big shamrock made of tinsel hanging on the door.

Tinsel shamrock, thats really getting in to the spirit of things.
And not one mention of Guinness
Yeah, you have to give someone kudos for sticking a shamrock made of tinsel on their door. :-)
Great photos! And such sweet looking houses, it looks like such a pretty village. I too thought the tinsel shamrock was an inspired idea - what an excellent way to reuse some christmas decorations.
