This Parade took place in March 2018, the weather was very cold but this did not prevent people from gathering along the proud celebration of this national day.
Quick and obvious differences between the Irish and French one are:
- since there is less budget for military forces, the section with officials is much shorter
- every communities present in a city can apply and showcase their activity
- the only place where I saw a lot of foreign bands playing was in Dublin
The nice thing about it is you can cheer people you actually know
