St. Patrick’s Day in Cork!

ACET student Andrea Sebé  Fernández gives an account of St. Patrick’s festivities that took place recently in the city.

“On 17th March came the long awaited day for everyone. In the morning everybody was in the parade, in Saint Patrick Street. The streets were packed with thousands of people all so excited. Families, locals and tourists like us all together to celebrate a massive cultural event.

There was music, many people with green customs and lots of good feelings.When the parade was over people some people decided to return home, and then others went to the pubs to listen live Irish music. It is a very busy evening in the city, maybe the busiest night of the whole year. If you wanted you could eat something in the many posts that had restaurants on the street to sell food”.
