St Patrick Day Highlights 2013, Dublin

Well, here in New Zealand St Paddy's Day is long over, but back there in Dublin & all over Ireland, there'll still be those who possibly don't have to work tomorrow, who are swilling down the black stuff & enjoying the craic & lively music. 

My St Patrick's Day was a quiet affair but I spent the day reminiscing about the fabulous time I had in Dublin last year.  You can read more about that day here

And this year, Dublin again, puts on a spectacle to rival the best of Irish parades anywhere else in the world.   The theme this year is "Great Things Happen When We Get Together".   As part of the Gathering 2013 initiative, thousands of visitors from all around the world have been invited to join the Parade this year.

I was sitting up in my bed at midnight New Zealand time, watching The Gathering Live Streaming of the Parade on my laptop.  It was like being back there all over again.

Already, RTE have a link on their website of this wet but fabulous day.  So if you want to immerse yourself in what it was like for this year's parade, go take a look.

I'm not sure how long this link will be up on the website, so get over there as soon as you can & take a look.

As well, here is a link that Tourism Ireland & The Gathering 2013 have posted with clips of the parade & of the Greening of some of the most famous monuments & landmarks around the world  -  St Patrick Day Highlights
