This beautiful ad by Tourism Ireland has me feeling a little sentimental and dare i say proud to be Irish. Who says advertising doesn’t work?!? With the weekend fast approaching i thought  it is time to see what we can get up in Dublin to celebrate our national holiday and better still a day off work for most. No shamrock drowning here, just good clean family fun

Tuesday 17th March. The Dublin Parade. I couldn’t have a Paddy’s day post and omit the main event. Apparently it attracts over 600,000 thousand people to the city and is second largest parade in the world second only to the New York parade. The Parade starts at noon from Parnell Square on the city’s Northside down O’Connell Street, over the River Liffey via O’Connell Bridge into Westmoreland Street, past Trinity College at College Green and on to Dame Street. It then turns left at Christchurch Cathedral into Lord Edward Street, Nicholas Street and Patrick Street before finally finishing at St. Patrick’s Cathedral. The route is 2.5 km and takes about 2 hours. More information: http://www.stpatricksfestival.ie/


Happy St. Patricks Weekend,
