St. Patrick’s Day 2015 – Arrival at Pollagh Church video

Fiona Gielty very kindly sent me this video of the Dooagh Pipe Band arriving at Pollagh Church.

Thanks Fiona!

More photos from the 2015 parade to come

Great news! I got sent some more photos of the St. Patrick’s Day parade courtesy of my sister-in-law Annette McNamara. I will put them together with the other photos from Catherine Keane and Carol Ann McNulty into one 2015 gallery.  Hopefully, it will be ready by the weekend.

Feel free to get in contact if you have any photos you would like featured on the site.

St. Patrick’s Day 2015 – Video marching back Dooagh

I found this video posted on youtube by John Kenny of the band marching back Dooagh in the afternoon. Still searching for more photos and videos of the day.

St. Patrick’s Morning video – 2015

I got a video from my sister Catherine of the Dooagh Pipe Band arriving in Pollagh this morning.

A nice way to start the morning! I hope to get more photos and videos throughout the day. Let me know if you have any to share!

Thanks Catherine!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day 2015

Good morning!

Have a wonderful day today, especially if you are in Achill for the parade. I just checked the weather forecast for the day and it looks like it will be partly sunny with temperatures of 8 degrees Celsius.

I wish I could have been there this year.

St. Patrick’s Day 2015 next Tuesday

Unfortunately, I am not able to be in Achill for St. Patrick’s Day this year so I won’t be able to take the usual photos from the parade.  I will try to get photos from other people. I would also encourage anyone to contact me with their own photos and I will be happy to post them on the site.

I can be contacted by email at or in the comments below.

Have a great time if you are going!
