Scenes from a Rainy Day Parade

Earlier in the week, the sky was blue, the sun was shining, and it felt like spring. Today, when there are St Patreick's Day parades all across the country, it is grey, windy, and rainy. A couple of places had to either postpone or cancel their parades for safety reasons, but here in Moville, it was not too bad and the parade went on as planned.

We walked down to Market Square and listened to the music for 10 minutes or so, but there were a lot of umbrellas, one of which caught on my hat as the woman holding it walked by. Then we realised the parade was going to begin by turning down our street, so we quickly walked home and stood in front of our house. There were people and umbrellas, but not as many and not bunched together, so it was a much better viewing spot.

Here are a few scenes from the parade.

When it was done, we turned around and walked through our front door. It is too bad that the weather ended up as it did. The festivities in Market Square were supposed to be more extensive, but the bouncy castle was deflated and the little food trucks did not seem to have customers. I am sure the pubs will not suffer from any loss of business though!

Happy St Patrick's Day 🍀🍀🍀
