Dublin being *the* place to do it, it just had to be done here; celebrating St Patrick's Day with the locals. Well, the locals and 650,000 other tourists. The parade was great fun. The theme was 'Energy' and more resembled a carnival parade. It was bitterly cold but we didn't seem to care.
Once the parade was over Helen, Stu and I headed to the Market Bar where we stayed for the next nine hours. Fran, Nicola and Jenny joined us until we were swept out with the rest of the rubbish and started our bar crawl in earnest. At some point Stu got chatting to some radio DJ. We eventually made it back to our hotel about 3am: one of our earlier nights so far on the Sceptre Isle.
