Liverpool F.C. mightn’t be the giants of English football that they once were but they’re still a giant club fan-wise. Here’s a few more photos from my trip to Liverpool in Janurary.

Saint Patrick’s Day Parade, Galway
This post is from last year but it’s one of my facourite photographs from 2012 and Saint Patrick’s Day is coming up again soon so I’m reposting it.
I know I’m a bit late with posting this but better late than never with my photo from Saint Patrick’s Day Parade. I was at the parade with my family so could only manage a hopeful snap here and there (not easy with an almost 2 year old on my shoulders…)
Luckily for me I had perfect timing with this photo and captured a nice reflection of the crowd in the musician’s trumpet.
Post title taken from the song ‘Hit The Parade’, from the album Bedlam a Go-Go by Something Happens, an Irish band from the late 1980s – early 1990s. I remember seeing them at Lark By The Lee in 1984 or 1985, a free music festival in Cork. Lead singer Tom Dunne had a very successful radio show on Today FM but unfortunately has now moved to a weekday morning slot on Newstalk. With Donal Dineen and Tom Dunne gone from music shows the Irish airwaves are a lot poorer for quality music

Just in case you haven’t noticed or guessed every post here has a musical title that’s related to the photo(s). Sister Sledge have a song called Lost In Music and it fits this man browsing in HMV, Limerick perfectly. It vaguely reminds me of DJ Shadow’s Endtroducing album cover (vaguely I said)
We’re lost in music
Caught in a trap
No turnin’ back
We’re lost in music
I was in Newcastle recently for a stag and we went to see (the high flying) Newcastle United in action. The Geordies are warm and friendly; here’s some photos of some supporters.
We had a good chat with this couple in The Strawberry, a pub opposite Saint James Park. They live in Stockport but have season tickets for Newcastle and travel six hour round trip for every Newcastle United home game! The man knew his football and had been to over eight Irish football stadiums in his time.

I was going to leave out this photo (as it’s blurry) but I love the guys big head of hair so I’m including it…
