Paddy's Day!

Well, despite the intentions of the Pope, who asked for St. Patrick's Day to be moved to the 14th, Dublin and I believe the rest of Ireland, celebrated on the 17th just like every other year. Should you ever find yourself in Dublin for Paddy's Day, don't do as I did and wait until the last minute to show up and find a spot to watch the parade, because you won't see much of anything. Although, it just as interesting most of the time to check out the crowd.

The Fair along Marion Square
- For some odd reason there is about 6 rides for the 1000's of people in town for the celebrations.
