Spirit of St Patrick deserts Armagh for Rio de Janeiro?

In the digital start up, Newry Times there’s a good quote from Conor Murphy on Saturday’s Band Parade on Inside Politics… in which he points to the economic cost of the band parade…

Although this seems to have been largely attributable to the bomb hoax left on College Street in the city by person or persons unknown on the band parade route itself presumably facilitating the evacuation and closure of several business that the parade alone would not have effected…

In other news, guess who brought the spirit of St Patricks Day to Rio?
