Happy St. Patrick’s Day and the Big 100K

St Patricks Day 08 Happy St. Patrick’s Day! My brother was in our Killarney shop, and I was too busy making coffees and scooping ice cream in Dingle to see much of the parade. I managed to snap a couple of photos in the one lull we had, which are here.

St Patrick's Day Parade

There was a great crowd around, and a very good atmosphere. For once, it was actually dry, and although quite windy, no one got wet!

In other news, Ice Cream Ireland has just passed the 100,000 visitor mark, which I feel is a big achievement. I know that some blogs might do that in a day, but I’m quite proud that this site has attracted so many people since its inception. Thanks to all my loyal readers, and long live ice cream!

    Hi there…am new to your site (so obviously was not part of the 100,000 hits!) but really like it. Looks like Dingle was the place to be on St Patrick’s Day! (When I was in Dingle in 2005 I didn’t have any icecream but did have a deep fried mars bar…not so good for a hangover as I discovered immediately afterwards…)

    Hope you had a fabulous St Patty’s day. I made mint chocolate chip ice cream for my Irish husband for the occasion :)

    Thanks, everyone, and I hope the ice cream turned out well for the lucky Tartelette hubby.
