In 2014 we freshened things up a bit with a new parade route and venue. For the first time we assembled outside of our beloved Kreuzberg as we met up at S-Bahnhof Plänterwald in Treptow for the parade. With St. Patrick’s Day’s falling on a Monday that year so we had our finger’s crossed for big numbers at the weekend. As usual we were not disappointed, as the extended Irish community in Berlin and their friends arrived en masse and wearing green for the parade and festival.
The musical highlight was undoubtedly Berlin’s Irish folk collective Iarthar, who played to a packed crowd at the Arena venue in Treptow.
We also had superb Irish dancers from Donegals Irish Dance troupe who really got the crowds going!
