There were some great shots from the ground with the Central Bank towering background in the (looking well in the sunlight). Long shots of the parade snaking back to Christchurch and the odd sneaky peek of Trinity and Bank of Ireland.
I think they should continue to use Dame St. when covering it in years to come. Itâ€™s a far more interesting backdrop than O'Connell St.

That lovely block of Georgians opposite the entrance to Sth Great Georges St looked fantastic, almost made the place look like a Georgian city!
The only problem was that Dame Street was in complete shadow, with only the Bank and top storey of the buildings sunny, whereas Westmoreland was ablaze last year (and obviously this year, only we didn't see it!)
O' Connell Bridge/Westmoreland St looked really good last year, it was just a pity the Ballast Office is as crappy as it is considering how prominant it was. Have to say I prefered this location.

I agree although it affects the view from Grafton St much more.
A master plan for College Green up to City Hall along the lines of the O'Connell St document with private sector execution would be most welcome.
Special mention must go to the girl from the Amazonas (something or other) group in the Bikini. Brazillian in spirit and movement but German in grit. A rare combination
