We’ve been going to rehearsals with Samboeira, a samba band in Sligo, for a while now. It took us a few weeks to get ready for St Patrick’s Day parade. It is very rewarding for beginners like us to be able to perform in a parade!
The parade we participated in was in Kiltimagh, county Mayo. Lovely place, and we were even lucky with the weather – it rained for only a few seconds during the parade!
Special thanks to our “cultural attaché” Del Thorogood, who always takes us out to cultural events!
