Everyone is Irish on St. Patrick’s Day, especially in Ireland! Two hundred and twenty-seven members of the Colorado State University Marching Band traveled to Ireland last month to play and march in the Dublin St. Patrick’s Day parade. It was the thrill of a lifetime, as an estimated 650,000 revelers lined the streets of Dublin for the event. The students spent a week in Ireland, performing several public concerts, visiting castles, feasting, and generally having a great time. Students with a connection to Lyons were senior Nicole Mikoni (trumpet) and sophomores Keith Albertson (trumpet), and Yani Ortega (clarinet).
