There's a common theme in all St. Patrick's Day parades throughout history.
There's the rain, the commentators, you'll probably see a tractor hauling some kind of farmyard animal, you'll see a sea of green and - sometimes - you'll see someone on a stunt.
Today's parade was, of course, no exception. If you were watching today's coverage of the parade of RTE, you'll have clocked a certain someone out for a quick sprint.
