St. Patrick’s Day Parade

St. Patricks' Day Parade

St. Patricks' Day Parade

It was a beautiful spring day for this year’s St. Patricks Day parade and thanks to pix.ie (@pixie) for providing the passes for the vetting viewing area and a wonderful photo taking opportunity. Also, thanks to the St. Patricks Festival guys (@stpatricksfest) for their good work. Have a look at some of the great shots over at the St. Patrick’s Group at pix.ie, there are some awesome shots. Also if you have photos from the parade, do share them with the group.

Additional Paddy’s Day stuff

Oh yes, it’s March, and with Mo’s previous blog entry, he has duly reminded everyone that Paddy’s Day is not too far away from now. Are you all set for the fun and festivity in town, of which there are tons of events organised that are free for all!

Simpsons

A couple of things to bring to your attention. There will be an exclusive Paddy’s Day “Simpsons Irish Adventure” that will be broadcasted on Sky 1 and Sky 1 HD (I would have thought they’d broadcast it on RTE or something, to be more inclusive – Sky is not Irish!) and if you’re one of the many people who will be in town for the parade, look out for special Simpsons’ float, because Nancy Cartwright (the voice of Bart) plus a couple other producers of the show will be there too.

For family or even groups of friends, you can kick off the weekend with a trip down to the Dublin Docklands, where The Spheres will be entertaining the crowd with 4 scheduled shows. The shows are ticketed but free, and you should book for the ticket now before they run out. Apply online, and you’ll be asked to confirm for tickets at some stage so you can print them out and bring with you to Grand Canal Dock. From what I gather, maximum tickets that one can apply per booking is for 6 adults, 4 children.
