It looks like Irish firefighters will not be "Marching through Georgia" this St. Patrick's Day.
They have been banned by the organisers in Savannah due to their drunken behaviour in previous years. This can only be to the good and hopefully it is the first step in the fightback by decent Irish people to have our National Holiday celebrated as a family occasion with decency and decorum.
Shock as firefighters banned from Savannah St. Patrick
I suppose it would be too much to ask that those from Ireland who have been banned in the US parade could be identified and also prevented from marching anywhere in Ireland.
