  4. I'm amazed at all the creativity and I love all the anti-Trump stuff. Fantastic. My favorite shot is of the band covered in rain gear! The Irish have a lot of get-up-and go which they needed when they immigrated to the U.S. Ol' Trump would have had a double fit and probably would have tried to build a wall in the middle of the Atlantic and make Ireland pay for it!

  5. Who says the Irish are stopped by a little rain. They are born, live and die with it and make still a good time. Very nice reportage Bill.

  13. Gosh, you had lousy weather for the parade. Such a shame. In Florida the weather was beautiful for the parade, but it is usually beautiful in winter.

  14. What a treat! A St. Patrick's Day parade in Ireland! And the rain - nor the crazy man - didn't seem to dampen enthusiasm.

  17. Too bad it rained on the parade. It's funny to see so many places using Trump to advertise. I love the guy whose whole life has gone to waste.
