Last year Mrs Tin walked in the Greystones St Patrick’s Day Parade, with the new Educate Together School.
For the three years before that Tingirl and I were in it with Tingirl’s baseball club.
So yesterday was to be the first time in five years that no member of the Tinfamily was in a Parade.
And it would have been, if I hadn’t had to drive Tinson2 to Wicklow town, and decided to save time by driving through Newtownmountkennedy (sorry, LK, that’s the longest name we’ve got).
I didn’t know that Newtown has its own Parade. I do now. For anyone who was watching it, Tinson2 and I were the ones driving in the opposite direction to all the other entrants.
In the car with steam coming out of its radiator.
I wonder if we won anything – Best Entry Depicting the State of the Economy, perhaps.
