Let's hope that the weather will be kind again. We could really do with a good dry week leading up to the event, to allow the water levels to drop a bit.
I hope everybody got safely through St. Patrick's weekend. I think it's fair to say we had a good weekend here in Boyle and our entry in this years Parade was quite successfull, as it landed us the overall 2nd prize again.
I hope to be able to include a few photos of our float later... Anybody that took good shots please forward them on to me: email@example.com
