St Patricks Day Parade 2012

For this years St Patricks Day celebrations we went on a day trip to Donegal Town. It was such a beautiful day, the best i have seen in a long time...

...We followed my Dads car all the way there, it took exactly an hour and a half and the weather couldnt have been more perfect for the journey...

...Donegal town was buzzing with people of all ages wearing their St Patricks greens and costumes...

...there were bouncy castles, bungy swings and all kinds of activities for the kids...
