This was how we got into trouble in the first place — 4 Comments

  1. Thank you Ian, My first visit, Educational, Entertaining, Interesting and Thought Provoking.

  2. I expect you are right about the numbers at the parade; but a lot of people weren’t lining the route but lining the pubs, or hanging around on St Stephen’s Green (as we were, having decided that dense crowds and toddlers don’t really mix). (The crowd was very dense indeed in the front four to five rows – 50cm is a luxurious estimate.) So you might get a little further towards the advertised total if you count the people who were vaguely there but not really watching.

    Like the new look blog, by the way.

  3. Dot,

    I think 200,000 would be a very generous total1

    675,000 is a figure worthy of the Boosterism of 19th Century Canadian history when people would try to talk up towns.
