  • Description

    Item title reads: "Religious Festival. Thousands take part in the Jubilee celebrations of the Mullingar confraternity."

    Ireland

    M/S of the parade, with large banners draped across, decorating the streets. The writing is in Gaelic. Men in suits march, followed by tiny children in white, men in clerical whites, and then young teenage girls walking backwards, all wearing white, in front of a small group carrying a canopy. The canopy covers some important catholic priest/bishop? There are soldiers carrying arms. Finally an official car with glass sides and open back like a carriage, passes by with an official high catholic dignitary, a cardinal, wearing small head cap. The crowd gather and listen.

    Note: Lovely parade of children, girls walking backwards is strange.
