Ireland week begins on March 7th to March 15th in Shanghai.

There would be dancing, drinking, music, literature and other exhibitions.

The opening ceremony on March 7 will take place at the Don Gallery with the launch of the “Fables” exhibition. Photographs by contemporary Irish and Chinese photographers will be on display until March 29. The exhibition was well-received in Ireland.

Did anyone see this exhibition? Interesting to get people’s opinion on it. Their Paddy’s day parade on March 14th sounds great:

Shamrock-covered “green dragons” and two “Celtic tigers” will rush along the parade route, joined by 20 groups of dancers, musicians, marching bands, sporting groups, university students and company representatives.

I wonder how our one this year fare against that? Great to see the festive spirit being revved up in China.
