Harley Parade In St. Patrick’s Day Parade, Waterford Ireland. Geraldine Mac Gowan :Doolin Musician

April 26, 2010

Who What When but Why?

Sean & I arrived in Dublin at 3:50 AM March 17. We cleared customs and our MAN of Men, David Deegan picked us up and out of  the exhausted crowd in the Dublin airport & drove Sean & I to Sean’s home near Waterford.  We slept for an hour . 

Sean drove us to the Parade to keep his promise to me that I could march in the Waterford St. Patrick’s Day Parade. But when we arrived at the Quay, there was no parking and the parade was about to begin.

We were stopped for a second at the head of the parade, before a policeman (guard) would make Sean move. Sean told me to get out & handed me his cel phone to stay in contact and drove off to park some blocks away. At the front of the parade were all these Harley guys & girls in Irish Pink Breast Cancer Harley Tee Shirts on their magnificent machines. In front of all them was Big, Smiling Lennie, Waterford’s Harley Dealer, towering beside  the lead vehicle, his big Harley dealer truck. After telling Lennie about  Sean & my history and trip to date  ( in 3 part harmony),  Lennie allowed/told me to climb aboard his Harley Super Pickup loaded with his black Harley beauty & 2 amazing  young things astride the monster.  The above video is a fragment of the first episode of what happened… (September 30 2010- more sure soon come of the parade…)

A  BTW – by the way…Another St. Patrick’s Day :  Decades… and oceans away:

The first time I was out of the USA  for St Patrick’s Day was in the 1980 s and was spent deep, deep, deep in the Jamaican Jungle , deep deep deep in a bat, bat, bat cave.  See : here, here and here.
