    Default Africa Day Dublin. 2013

    Lots of colourful outfits, lots of crowds. Happy out.

    BUT I couldn't get a parking space in my usual spot to go to Ryans of Parkgate Street for late lunch today with my beloved. It's a ritual. feck. Had to go elsewhere. The crowds around Phoenix Park was unreal.

    I didn't hear anything about this before today, and most of it was free up in Farmleigh.

    Did anyone else? I'd say it was great Craic.

    Great day! 32,000 people were at it I believe. Today was my second time going, I went for the first time last year. I was primarily there to enjoy myself with all the different cultures and people but I also did a radio report on the day also, interviewing six women (I am not intentionally sexist! ). Below also is an article from The Examiner also on the day. I hope others will also post up links to other coverage of the day also.

    Great idea!

    But who paid for all this

    - if as reported it was Free?

    On a serious note the lady I interviewed from the Congo told me about the role of multinationals in the country. I did not know about this. I will do an indepth report on what is going on in the Congo soon after gaining some more insight into what is going on in the country today.

    Irish Aid. What is your problem with that, assuming you have one?
