Sailor off the Water Annalise Murphy Led Dublin St. Patrick's Day Parade

The Dublin St Patrick’s Day Parade has become such a colourful extravaganza that having an Olympic Sailing Silver Medallist as Grand Marshall is something which a almost got lost in the crowd. But Irish sailing’s own Annalise Murphy, heroine of Rio, bravely stepped up to the plate to lead the way in a classic vintage car, accompanied by her mother Cathy, herself a former Olympian sailor. They gallantly saw it through in style, and our photo shows Annalise with some of her newfound fellow Paraders having a quick visit to Liffeyside, which maybe wasn’t quite the same as Rio de Janeiro in regatta mode, but the mood was good.
