St. Patrick’s day parade in Cork 2012

It wouldn’t be a parade in Ireland without some rain, right? ) At least I had time to sort out the photos I took earlier today.

Speaking about the weather – it was remarkably good in the morning. The sun was shining, loads of people went out on the streets dressed in green, there were children eveywhere waving Irish flags, farmer’s market was up and running on Grand parade. I just love St.Patrick’s day!

Hope you all are having a wonderful day, but even though the parade is over don’t hurry home. The rugby game of England vs. Ireland should be something to watch in a pub with a pint of Guinness tonight!

Happy St.Patrick’s day everyone )

    Bwahaha, it’s like a miniature Whelan ^^^ :D I never understood why St Paddy’s day was so popular compared to other saints days… is it just because it’s a grand old opportunity to get hammered?

      What I don’t understand is why St.Patrick’s day is so popular outside of Ireland. I mean even in Russia there is a parade on that day.
      In Ireland its a huge holiday cause it’s kinda the main saint here I guess, but when it comes to other countries – have no idea )
