We've celebrated St. Patrick's Day last year and this year with our good friends from Cork. Here we are all together on the shuttle bus ready to see Newgrange.
The next morning we got to Dublin City Centre before everyone else, and found a prime spot on O'Connell Street! It was great fun. We had to get some hot chocolate from Star Bucks to keep us warm, and we just enjoyed seeing all the people slowly gather in until it was time to begin. By 12 the place was crazy busy with thousands of people everywhere. People were trying to overtake our spots that we had saved for four hours, but we did an okay job at holding our ground. We did get two old ladies that crossed over my stroller and pushed against my back the whole time, and one spilled hot tea in the front seat of the stroller. I couldn't get too mad, they were nice enough but just a little annoying. I kept laughing though because they would stick their camera out next to my ear and just take photos of whatever they could. They didn't see what they were shooting, but I saw, and they didn't take good photos that way. Whatever silly grandma ladies!
