Happy St Patrick's Day
Thousands throng capital for Dublin parade
"Hundreds of thousands of people from all over the world have thronged the streets of Dublin today for the annual St Patrick’s Day parade. The two-hour spectacle, which got underway at noon, included street theatre troupes, artists, giant puppetry, dancers and marching bands from Ireland and further afield as they weaved the 2.5km route across the capital. The parade, made up of around 2,000 performers and over 900 marching band members, began from Parnell Square North and is the highlight of the capital’s six-day St Patrick’s weekend festival."
