It’s raining, it’s pouring, Fred the band is playing… Well, that isn’t quite the way it goes, but on Saturday afternoon the clouds were filled to the brim with rain and the St. Patrick’s Festival in Cork City continued with a food fair on Patrick’s Street itself and a bandstand stage set up near Drawbridge Street. At half two, Fred went on and drew quite a crowd in spite of the weather. Here are some photos of the performance and the people. Click through to see more.
Earlier in the afternoon when it was just a soft day and not yet rainy, the food fair was alive with activity. One of my favorites, Green Saffron, was there as well as another chance to get a free cuppa Barry’s.
