BATON ROUGE, LA (WVUE) - There's perhaps no bigger St. Patrick'sDay celebration in the world than the one in Ireland. Today they marked the bigday with a huge parade through Dublin, and smack dab in the middle of it all,you could find the Golden Band from Tigerland.
A Cajun on the streets of Dublintoday would have thought they were still at home as the traditional sounds of LouisianaState University were broadcast across Ireland. The RTE network covered LSU's appearance in Dublin'sannual St. Paddy's Day parade.
"Well, these are probably the most colorful. There are 340 members here ofthe Louisiana State University Tiger Marching Band," said an RTE announcer. "Whata great spectacle. Isn't this fantastic?"
The announcers talked about how amazed they were that the Golden Girls werewearing high heels, saying they were probably used to it because of all the MardiGras parades back home.
"In 2012, they were named as one of the top 10 marching bands in theUnited States by the Huffington Post," the announcer said. "It's theirfirst time in Ireland, but they really are making an impact. Look atthat!"
It was the trip of lifetime as LSU headed to the greenest place on earth on St.Paddy's Day and gave a performance that would leave anyone green with envy.
