St. Patricks Day 2010
It was a beautiful spring day on March 17th of this year as a group from the Ballinasloe Active Retirement Association took part in our local St. Patrick’s Day parade. Many from our walking group were in attendance together with other members.
We paraded in our national colours of green, white and orange and happily waved the Tricolour. To everyone’s delight we took first place in the Voluntary Category. We were so proud to be Irish! Given the blue sky and pleasant sunshine many spectators came out to watch and applaud all the participants in the parade.
Afterwards members who would have found the walk too difficult to participate in, joined the victorious members as we gathered in Gullanes Hotel for refreshments. And so another St. Patricks Day celebration came to a close.
