image for Tokyo Saint Patrick's Day Parade A Success
Big In Japan

The annual Saint Patricks day parade took place here in Tokyo at the weekend and was regarded by experienced observers as an unqualified success. Hundreds of Japanese-Irish dressed themselves in outlandish green outfits and paraded through the streets of Tokyo in honour of the mother country.

In tribute, police horses were coloured by green food dye and green beer was on tap in the city's many Irish bars. In additiion, sales of toy leprechauns went through the roof and harp playing colleges were said to be inundated with enrolment applications.

Bono was invited, but couldn't attend. He did however issue a statement lauding 'the special relationship between Ireland and the Japanese-Irish.

We asked a Japanese-Irish parade goer, Mr Tadeshi O'Malley, what was so special about Saint Patrick's Day for him. He told us:

"In the nineteenth century a ship, HMS Buggerall docked in Tokyo and the crew went on shore leave. One of the scurvy seadogs, Bo'sun McCarthy fell victim to the urges from his loins and we are his legacy. We are proud to be Japanese-Irish. Bo'sun McCarthy impregnate many geisha girls and we the result. We now number many thousand. To be sure."

Plans are already afoot for a Buggerall Day in Tokyo.

More as we get it.
