Another year, another St. Patrick’s Day has come and gone in Galway City.
But this St. Patrick’s Day parade more than made up for the letdown from last year’s cancellation.
Here are some snaps of our favourite moments from Saturday!
If you have any great photos of the day you’d like to share, send them to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll post the top five!
The parade kicked off with a sparkly MC:
Eyre Square was packed as Galway residents all tried to see what was coming next.
There was some lovely dancing from the Galway Filipino community
Local school marching bands got involved, too
Along with Galway’s tallest residents, the Community Circus folk
We found Nemo! He’s one of the Sea Scouts.
And then some horses from an actual circus captivated the children:
Macnas’ famous dancers and giant puppets made an appearance
Members of the crowd displayed their inventiveness as well
Even the guards joined the fun!
Los Clandestinos played to a festive atmosphere after the parade
And shop street was draped in green and gold.
