That means a hundred thousand welcomes in Irish, the language of kings.
Yesterday the St. Patrick's Day parade wound its way from City Hall, along Laurier Avenue and Bank Street, to Lansdowne Park. I snapped some shots, which I'll be sharing today, tomorrow, and Tuesday before moving onto other things. There is a large Irish population here in Ottawa and the surrounding area, and as such, it was a long parade group and a long route. There were a lot of people along the route, though I took my shots from places where gaps could be found, so the number of onlookers isn't quite that apparent.
I really liked these two big horses, bearing the parade's grand marshal in the carriage.
