FLAGS

Bratacha 2013 Festival

Bratacha 2013 Festival

No problems about flying flags here: it’s part of the Festival of Flags and Emblems, Bratacha 2013 in Dún Laoghaiare. The tricolour was carried along with the union flag and those of many other nations. Bratacha is the Irish word for flags. This afternoon there was a parade through the town featuring flags and emblems from different countries and groups. The Air Corps pipe band followed a colour party at the head of the parade, which featured people from several different nations. A very colourful event. Among the groups taking part were the local Fianna Fáil cumann and also representatives of Dún Laoghaire Lions Club.
