Achill Sound Parade 2016 Gallery is now online

Good morning!

10 days to go until St. Patrick’s Day 2017. I realised yesterday that I had taken some photos from the Achill Sound Parade last year and it would be a good time to get everybody in the mood by publishing them. Let’s hope that conditions are somewhat as good as last year’s perfect conditions.
