17 magnificent moments from today's Dublin Pride Parade
It had it all.

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

4. As the crowds lined the streets

5. Some people could get a second use out of their brilliant signs

6. The effort that went into some of the floats <3

7. It was just the most vibrant day

8. There were pride pooches out and about

9. And the flags on the quays were flying high

10. A+ for effort, everyone

11. There was appropriate political signage on show too

12. Rainbows, everywhere

13. The Gardaí were getting in on the face painting

14. So many people marching needed some traffic control

15. It’s Raining Men was sung with joyous enthusiasm

16. This guy popped up fully decked out

17. And it wouldn’t be Pride without The George’s lorry

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

And the night is only getting started.
