St Patrick’s day in Nottingham

As I had a job in the lace market – a new BS mortice lock fitted to an apartment – I thought I’d wander into the square to see the annual Irish celebration and there’s a lot of green on show! The weathers not great but there is a large amount of people “not” working today and enjoying a pint or seven of the black stuff. I’m told the annual parade again only started from thurland street and marched into the square the same as last year due to funding which is quite sad really as I do remember there used to be numerous floats (scaffold vans with a banner round it) not to long ago.

Well I enjoyed a quick pint and and bumped into a few friends but unlike this lucky lot I’ve got work to do.

Happy St Patrick’s day.
