WHAT A DAY for it.

People started gathering in Dublin city centre at midday for the Pride Parade – and it was a joyous, raucous occasion as the floats made their way from Stephen’s Green to Smithfield Square.

1. It started with the Google Map of Dublin displaying the route for everyone to see in full colour

2. And the weather held out… and turned into a fine day for a parade

3. Papa Don’t Preach blared through the streets of Christchurch

The final destination was Smithfield Square – and that was suitably buzzing for those arriving
