Preparations begin for annual Dallas St. Patrick's Day Parade

The 37th Annual Syracuse St. Patrick’s Parade on S. Salina St. in downtown Syracuse

However we also get reports of police concerns over criminal and anti-social behaviour through mindless binge drinking during the festivities.

This year's parade was shorter than normal due to construction on Sainte-Catherine Street.

Lord Mayor Mick Finn said it was a fantastic day for Cork.

Like many other significant events of the early 20th Century in Ireland, one need look no further that Conradh na Gaeilge, or the Gaelic League as the organization was then known. "It's great to have Rob leading out as Grand Marshall, one of Cork's most famous sons!"

"The parade is about highlighting what goes on in a voluntary nature in Cork all year round as well as the diversity of the city, when you see the Mexican floats and everything else from all corners of the world, so it's great".

"Our St Patrick's programme spans Great Britain, Mainland Europe, North America, Australia and emerging tourism markets like China, Brazil and the Middle East".

Boston and NY both claim the title of the original St Patrick's Day parade, while St Augustine in Florida also put their name up for the honor.

Marching bands and dancers made their way from Piccadilly.

Angela Cummins, originally from Yorkshire, has been living in Cork for the past 22 years and comes to the parade every year.

Before the parade, the state's political leaders gathered for the St. Patrick's Day Breakfast in the city's South Boston neighborhood for Irish songs, Irish dancing and groan-worthy political jokes.

Amy Savage, seven, said this was her seventh parade.

"I hope in some way we have made a difference to add colour and spectacle, to create wonderful memories for both the children taking part, and the tens of thousands of people who attend the event".
