Ach, any oul excuse!

If you’ve not had a look yet, check out the Britain and Ireland photo story on the Paddy’s Day Parade in London. This guy’s my favourite. He wasn’t too fussed about Patrick, the Irish or multiculturalism, but he wasn’t going to give up the chance to lash out a few tunes and get in a few bob. There was influences from everywhere in the parade, even the obvious one from London’s biggest summer jamboree, the Notting Hill Carnival. You can pick up the whole set here, or see it as a slideshow here.

We are reader supported. Donate to keep Slugger lit!

For over 20 years, Slugger has been an independent place for debate and new ideas. We have published over 40,000 posts and over one and a half million comments on the site. Each month we have over 70,000 readers. All this we have accomplished with only volunteers we have never had any paid staff.

Slugger does not receive any funding, and we respect our readers, so we will never run intrusive ads or sponsored posts. Instead, we are reader-supported. Help us keep Slugger independent by becoming a friend of Slugger. While we run a tight ship and no one gets paid to write, we need money to help us cover our costs.

If you like what we do, we are asking you to consider giving a monthly donation of any amount, or you can give a one-off donation. Any amount is appreciated.
