The long tradition of the Aisling Society’s involvement in the St Patrick’s Day parade continued this year, as reported by our Treasurer (and inveterate SPD parade attendee) Padraic Hoban:
The Aisling Society of Sydney had a “float” in the St Patrick’s Day Parade yesterday. The truck was well decorated and so were the kids on the back of the truck. The society’s banner was prominent on the front of the truck and I could hear the couple of paragraphs about the society being read out over the P.A. system as we drove past the Sydney Town Hall steps. The rain arrived just in time for the start of the Parade but this didn’t dampen the spirits. There was lots of colour, and smiles and waves to and from the crowd.
