  • Description

    About 100,000 Irish-Americans marched down Fifth Avenue on Saturday (17 March) in the 211th annual New York St patrick's Day Parade.

    Rain stopped just before the noon starting-time, as the 'luck of the Irish' came through for marchers and spectators with mild temperatures and partly sunny skies prevailing.

    It took five hours for the nearly 250 bands and other marching units to wind their way down the avenue past a reviewing stand in front of St Patrick's Cathedral.

    Parade organisers permitted the marchers to carry signs bearing only one slogan: 'England -- Get Out of Ireland'. All other slogans were banned.
