pictures of dublin on paddy’s day

Bring your ladders or climb a statue, it’s easier to catch a glimpse of the colourful and extravagant costumes of the Paddy’s Day parade. Tourists and locals cover the parade routes like a sea of ants. Bobbing shamrocks float through the crowd and adult sized leprechauns are found throughout the crowd. It was the first time that I had been to the St. Patrick’s Day parade in Dublin as a spectator. The artistic stories told by different counties were less like the parade floats I grew up with but far more descriptive and skillful creations. Enjoy the moment!
