    As far as I know it is the same route every year they go from the riverside up Henrietta Street down Louisburgh st along the main st up to Argyll square and then along to the assembly rooms.Don't quote me on it tho lol x
    The nice thing about living in a small place is that if you dont know what you are doing....there's always somebody who does,or thinks they do! x

    Thats a shame, a lot of old folk in Girnigoe st and Louisburgh st have always watched the floats from their gardens.

    I am on a float AGAIN this year and can't wait although I am stressed out with painting and sewing, but it is one of the best nights of the year, and excellent crack. You can make a fool of yourself (within reason) and no-one cares. Once you have been on a float you never want to watch again, I had to watch the floats for 2 years as I was highly pregnant and to say I felt pig sick is an understatement. Lets hope it is a dry night for Saturday.
