St Patrick’s Day Parade In London


I spent a great couple of hours on Sunday ducking and diving through the St Paddy’s Day Parade that passed from Piccadilly to Trafalgar Square – as well as a fair bit of sheltering from the rain – very much enjoying the craic with the army of green-clad, soaked-through revelers.
