Here's how Temple Bar is faring today...

Just really relaxed, no vuvuzuelas or anything.

ON ST. PATRICK’S Day, Temple Bar becomes the centre of divilment and merriment, its cobblestoned vista transformed into a sea of green hats and inflatable tricoloured hammers.

Earthcam has a camera positioned at the corner of Temple Bar and, on St. Patrick’s Day, the livestream makes for some pretty compelling viewing.

If you love the sound of people talking loudly over one another and participating in Oasis singalongs, you should check it out.

Here’s a view of the area over the past twenty-four hours.

As many people were off work today, last night was utter bedlam. 

And yes, there was an Oasis singalong happening when we checked in on it.

St. Patrick’s Day, 9.20am

The morning after the night before: completely serene and not a ginger wig in sight!

11.20am

Okay, a handful of green top hats are invading.

But it’s still relatively safe.

[speaks into walkie talkie]

Alert, alert. I count at least thirty green hats.

STAY AWAY.

1.45pm

I REPEAT, STAY AWAY.

2.45pm

Oops, too late!

You’re being carried away in a current of green and there’s no way out. A teenager is shouting about getting “gee-eyed” and you have to pay €8 for a pint… OF WATER.

3.10pm

Everyone is now screaming for some reason and someone has found a vuvuzuela lying around since the 2010 World Cup.

Multiple people have whistles and a group of people are chanting “Olé, olé, olé”.

WELCOME TO HELL.
