Here is a video shot by John Kenny of the Dooagh Pipe Band at Gielty’s that was posted on YouTube.
Another Patrick’s Day is at an end. The weather could have been better and could have been worse. I’m going to spend some days going through the photos and hope to have all of them uploaded by next weekend. I hope you enjoyed the day wherever you spent it.
The parade is underway down in Keel. Nice weather at Pollagh Church but some rain is on the way. Let’s hope the conditions improve for the rest of une parade.
The Annual Band Dance is on tonight. All the information is contained on the poster below. I’m not going to be there but if any photos come my way, I’ll post them in the site.
Have a great time if you go there!
The photos from 2013 are now available on this page. Thankfully, got them finished off over the weekend. That’s it done for another year. Enjoy!
Thanks to my Aunt Teresa in Cleveland for sending this photo onto me of Kathleen enjoying the craic in Gielty’s. Welcome home Kathleen!
I’m going to create a 2013 page with photos over the next day or two. In the meantime, here’s a snap taken during the blustery wind and rain at Dookinella Church yesterday afternoon.
The band has just left Pollagh Church. Thankfully, the sun has come out and the earlier showers have gone for the time being. Let’s hope the conditions don’t worsen the rest of the day.
Good morning from Achill! It’s a very blustery day and the parade will be bracing for the band and their followers.
The band started at 8:40 by playing at Mollie’s.
It’s after midnight in Achill. Happy St. Patrick’s Day. Go to bed and wait for the big drum to wake the band for the parade tomorrow.
