The route for the Dublin St. Patrick's Day Parade leads from Parnell Square on the city's Northside down O'Connell Street, over the River Liffey via O'Connell Bridge into Westmoreland Street, past Trinity College at College Green and on to Dame Street. It then turns left at Christchurch Cathedral into Lord Edward Street, Nicholas Street and Patrick Street before finally finishing at St. Patrick's Cathedral.
Hundreds of thousands are expected to fill the streets on the national holiday. Many will gather along O'Connell Street with its looming spire which has since replaced Nelsons's Pillar as the dominant landmark in the city centre.
