Bandon’s St Patricks Day Parade

March 22, 2008

Full marks go to the organizers of the Bandon St Patricks Day parade as it gets better and better every year.  We did miss a pipe band and some Irish dancers so perhaps we could aim to include those next year.  All the groups and individuals that paraded from the scouts to the farmers on their classic tractors and the classic cars were great as was the performance by the Fanzini Brothers before and after the parade itself.

Our American guests from Chicago loved the old tractors.  They were expecting our river to be green like in Chicago but aside from that, they loved the small intimate feel of our parade compared with their massive parade.  They had a great lunch afterwards at The Poachers Inn



The Fanzini Brothers visit Kilbrogan House

March 14, 2008

Yesterday  at Kilbrogan House we were fortunate to have a visit from the Fanzini Brothers who were performing at the Bandon St Patricks Day parade. I highly recommend their show to anybody who is looking for a couple of multi talented entertainers. They have been performing for years and easily adapt to all age groups. These two hail from the gaeltacht hence are multi lingual.
