fter a shaky start to Tuesday March 17th 2015, with the early morning sky very much threatening to rain on our parade as the odd light shower passed overhead, the sun came out for Greystones’ St. Patrick’s Day Parade once again.
And so too did the people, of course. We swung down by the preparations at the South Beach, as various jugglers, dancers, civil defencers and trumpeteers all rubbed shoulders – glad to see it dry, and happy to be joining in the fun of the day.
By the time we made our way back up through the town, just keeping ahead of the parade, the streets of Greystones were packed. Some had come to see their loved ones proudly strut up through the main street, flying the flag for their club, their school, their gang.
Others were there to cheer on family and friends who had a float, or a boat, or maybe even a goat. Others still were there just to join the rest of Greystones in celebrating not only our country and our heritage, but our town too.
With so many photographs taken on the day – close to 200, in fact – we have the bulk of them here. For now, here are the good-looking Greystonians at the parade…
