Patrick's Day parades draw crowds in Oklahoma City

It's the oldest and largest St. Patty's Day parade in the world, with people lining up with their finest green duds to celebrate the patron saint of Ireland and the Archdiocese of NY.

The St. Patrick's Day Parade will follow a shorter route again this year, as it did in 2015 and last year, because of snow clogging the neighborhood's streets.

The Mayor praised the contribution the Irish had made to the city over successive generations, from the people who rebuilt the city after the war to NHS staff and the latest wave of entrepreneurs and business leaders.

Earlier Sinn Fein's former president Gerry Adams was honoured at a St Patrick's Day breakfast event hosted by the mayor of NY on Saturday. "We love to listening to the bands and watching the floats". "We were thinking about what group we could become so we could march in it next year". About 30 minutes later, a herd of Texas longhorn cattle, surrounded by four horsemen in front and three behind them, began the parade down Exchange Avenue. "It's better being on the other side", he said. "I get to celebrate my day, here, while I'm still living in Canada".

This year's grand marshal is Loretta Brennan Glucksman, chairman of The American Ireland Fund, a group that has raised millions of dollars for philanthropic projects in Ireland, including funding for integrated schools for Catholic and Protestant children in Northern Ireland.

The parade was a familiar occasion for Matthew McCrosson, 68, who has frequently marched in it during the past half-century.

When asked about the O'City Parade, set to start an hour later, Adkins said he had no idea it was happening. "The parade represents not only Irish, but people from all nationalities".

Many attendees said they came from communities neighbouring Hudson - like Saint-Lazare and Vaudreuil.
