Someone said :
Given the little-moving queues outside for most of the night, I'd say pretty darn packed!

Yeah thought so.. a few friends are heading there but don't fancy spending the day in a jam packed club queuing for a drink / toilet

Great Pride, met a few Gaireans loitering with intent opposite St Patricks cathedral, the only downside was the huge gaps later in the parade, it was as if there were several different ones.

I heard the weather was lovely. Was Smithfield a good venue to finish the parade?

Yes it was, got the luas after four and the parade was still crossing the liffey, went back in later and the buzz was brilliant with everyone in great humour wearing the rainbow colours, ended up meeting some gays from Belfast who had an absolute blast, great great day. Oh and they claimed that Our Lean Forrester is a raging dyke.

That was down to two things I think:
a) the hot weather, which meant that a lot of families left with kids mid-way, as it was a long walk in that heat for kids to endure;
b) the route had more wide roads/streets than usual, and the number of red light where the parade had to stop to allow traffic to flow from time to time may have stretched the parade more than usual.

When we did cross the bridge in the yellow section, the buses were queuing for a mile or two.
I stayed a week bit in Smithfield, which was a great venue, and then took my bus which only took 10 minutes to cross the queue of the parade, with nearly no other bus queuing.
Which suggests that the start of the parade was stopping the buses often, but that the buses then stopped the parade often. Thus the gaps!

Note on the drinking.

There were a few people who had had one too many within the parade itself.

But all those we politely asked to leave our section were apologetic, and went somewhere else to be merry.

So overall a very civilized crowd.

Thats good to hear. Hope everyone had a happy and safe pride.

Saw my neighbour stumble home at 4am in a jocker. He must be dying today

Had a great time at the parade!

The new route is shit, but that didn't bother me too much! Would have stayed for the speeches and all that but had to run back home cos of my friend and flatmate's birthday bbq.

Fantastic day altogether!
