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 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!
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.
Finally, all of the photo galleries are now available on the new site. There is still some work to be done adding text to various galleries and tagging photos correctly. However, the main body of work is now complete.
I hope that the layout and usability of the site is an improvement. You can always go and look at the old site but no new photos or features will be added there.
In the course of porting over the information from the old site, I noticed that the guestbook has been deleted. That is a real pity as many great messages were left on there over the years. This is always a problem storing data with external sites where data can be deleted. The commenting available at the bottom of each page is now stored with the rest of the website. So if you left a message in the old system, please do so again. It would be great to see it.
Is there anything missing from the new site? Any features you would added? Just comment. 🙂
I have added photo galleries from the parades from 2007 to 2012. Click on the photos option beside the home button above to find the gallery years listed. There is now the possibility to show the photos as a slideshow using the PicLens option. This is not available for all browsers and devices.
Feel free to share the galleries on social networks at the bottom of the page or to comment on any aspect of a particular year. I’m working on getting commenting working for individual photos.
