Hundreds of thousands of tourists and locals gathered in Dublin on St.
Patrick’s Day to attend one of the largest St.
Patty’s Day parades in the world.
The parade featured a big international mix of people, with at least a dozen different marching bands from American high schools and universities taking part.
The event started with the President of Ireland, Michael D Higgins, leading the parade, followed by several hours of spectacular performances.
The crowd was estimated to be over half a million people along the two-mile parade route, with a final count expected to be even higher.
The parade has become a global event, attracting people from all over the world who want to tap into the famous Irish energy and hospitality.
The post-pandemic comfort level around events like this has contributed to the large turnout, making it a truly unforgettable experience for all who attended.
