The 2001, Dublin, St. Patrick's Parade

I took the opportunity to see the St. Patrick's Day Parade in Dublin, on Sunday, 20 May 2001 (delayed by the foot-and-mouth disease scare).

I came back with a combination of video clips and still photos, some of which I've uploaded here for your viewing. I cannot explain the significance of any of the images, but maybe you can fill me in.

Please excuse any inadvertent advertisement for McDonald's...It's just where I ended up in the crowd, with the bus late and all.

I'm guessing Cinderella's Carriage...

One of a group of whirling, gargoyle-headed creatures...
Maybe a Harpy?

Hey, it looked interesting...
