St. Patrick’s Day Parade’s was a success

I want to extend to all our readers and friends congratulations for the grand turn out for the St. Patrick's Day Parade on Saturday last. The weather was great, the marchers were greater and the crowds on Saint John Street the greatest!

The really beautiful old houses on John Street are worth a second look. Lovely balconies were filled with people who cheered or waved flags to mark the day. It was heart-warming to see the number of store fronts decorated with shamrocks and green balloons. Thank you to all those merchants.

Congratulations to Peter Farrell and his hard-working committee who assembled a very respectable parade, a fine show in this very special city of ours.

Thank you, all the lovers of Ireland who took part in the long walk to City Hall. Thank you, Quebec. Thank you visitors from everywhere!

Thanks to the Chronicle for the grand spread of pictures, and congratulations to the photographers who kept running ahead to catch the best shots.
