John Kenny is back with a new video from the 2018 St. Patrick’s Day parade. The Dooagh Pipe band starts playing at the Wavecrest and marches into the centre of Dooagh.
The first video of 2018 is ready and there will be more uploaded over the next few weeks. This was the final video that I shot before the batteries on my camera and phone gave out.
Managed to get into this site again and start posting content from the 2018 St. Patrick’s Day parade on Achill Island.
Let’s start with this one of the waking big drum on St. Patrick’s morning. More content coming over the next few weeks.

It’s Whit Weekend and the forecast in Achill is for rain. Sounds a bit like St. Patrick’s Day. 😉
Now the gallery for the 2017 St. Patrick’s Day parade is now complete so it’s the perfect time to view all the photos.
Enjoy and have a great weekend!

A lovely video from the archives. Back in 2010, here is something that I captured while the band was playing at Gielty’s.

Here is a video of Dooagh Pipe Band playing the first tune of St. Patrick’s Day 2017 at Molly’s in Keel West.
This video shot at Pollagh Church shows how desperate the conditions were on this St. Patrick’s Day. Much respect to the band for continuing to play in such conditions. The spectators appreciated the effort shown by all the bands on the day.

The process of organising the photos for the 2017 St. Patrick’s Day parade gallery is ongoing. In the meantime, some photos will be posted occasionally until the gallery is complete.
