Ladies All-Stars in St Patrick's Day parade

The TG4 O’Neill’s Ladies Football All Stars touring
party were handed pride of place in the country’s first ever St
Patrick’s Day parade yesterday. Unlike most St Patrick’s Day parades
in Ireland, the sun was out in Singapore yesterday as the country
celebrated the occasion by hosting a parade for the first time ever
– with the Ladies Football All Stars marching in the procession.

All of the players, officials and other members of the touring
party took part in the parade, which was the climax of a special
Irish themed weekend, in Singapore’s Boat Quay yesterday. The
players had spent the previous night at a gathering to watch the
Ireland rugby team play England in the Six Nations – with the
game starting at 1.30am local time in Singapore.

They will visit local schools again tomorrow for coaching sessions
with the pupils – many of whom turned out on Saturday to watch
the 2004 All Star team beat their 2005 counterparts.
