This year’s St Patrick’s Day parade was a wet and wild affair! However, being José’s first St Patrick’s Day in Ireland, we thought we’d get out amongst it and literally soak up the atmosphere!! It was also a good chance to test out our new toy, the GoPro Hero5. We’re very excited about getting out and about with it. It was literally just out of the box so we haven’t figured out all the amazing features just yet but it’s so light and easy to carry around, it’s a dream!
Here’s a short clip featuring some of the highlights from the 2017 St Patrick’s Day parade in Dublin.
If you want to delve a little into Ireland’s ancient past, there’s no better place than Newgrange. This Stone Age passage tomb located in the beautiful Boyne valley in Meath is more than 5,200 years old and pre-dates both Stonehenge and the Egyptian Pyramids. Newgrange is one of three principal passage tombs – Knowth and Dowth being the other two – and many smaller mounds in the area which are collectively know as Brú na Bóinne and have been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
