Best moments from Galway’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade

Another year, another St. Patrick’s Day has come and gone in Galway City.

But this St. Patrick’s Day parade more than made up for the letdown from last year’s cancellation.

Here are some snaps of our favourite moments from Saturday!

If you have any great photos of the day you’d like to share, send them to events@galwaydaily.ie. We’ll post the top five!

The parade kicked off with a sparkly MC:

We found Nemo! He’s one of the Sea Scouts.

And then some horses from an actual circus captivated the children:

Macnas’ famous dancers and giant puppets made an appearance

Members of the crowd displayed their inventiveness as well

Even the guards joined the fun!

Los Clandestinos played to a festive atmosphere after the parade

And shop street was draped in green and gold.
