UPDATE: Click here for Parade route.
I did a photoshoot for the Macnas last week to promote their upcoming parade for the Galway Arts Festival: Apocolopolis. I’m on a float with a disturbingly shallow wheelbase, but it’s actually quite steady, and once I get past that initial 15 seconds of telling Debbie the director that I can’t do it, it’s fine. I had my own trusty photographer with me that day: my son Naoise, who held his own among the likes of Joe Shaughs and Andrew Downes. The following are all his shots.
The parade is on this Sunday the 20th July. I’ll put a Google Map up of the route when I know what it is!
