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
