Paddy’s Day Float Winners 1967 – 2017

There’s something magical about the Paddy’s Day Parade. The Faa Side can never quite decide whether its been over or underwhelmed. The tone is set by the politicians walking at the head of the parade. Will they march solemnly and proudly at the front in their robes? Or will they just go baloobas, dress like Elvis and walk at the back like an unwanted but amusing encore when the lights come on after a wedding disco in mid Louth?

We’ll have to see. To get you in the mood, here is the official list of best float winners since 1967. See yous at 12 on Friday.
