Yesterday was a very special day for our EVS volunteers. Irina, Olga and Santi, took part in the Saint Patrick’s Parade in Dublin! The three of them played tambourin with Samboeire, the Sligo samba band, along with Buí Bolg from Wexford.

Dressed up as ducks, Irina, Olga and Santi, accompanied by GEAI volunteer Del, paraded through the Dublin City main streets and were cheered by thousands of people (including the President of Ireland, Michael D. Higgins and Dublin City Mayor, Christy Burke). “It was an amazing experience, a day that I’m not going to forget in my whole life”, Santi said after the parade.
