Daffodil Day

Daffodil Day is the Irish Cancer Society's biggest fund-raising day of the year. It takes place at the end of March when the cheery yellow daffodils are plentiful.  Volunteers take to the streets of Irish cities, towns and villages selling daffs and some shops, schools and businesses  add their support by holding coffee mornings and competitions.
The town of Drogheda is to the forefront in supporting Daffodil Day with numerous shops and businesses decorating their windows in a bid to turn the town yellow. This initiative has been running for a number of years now and was featured on national television this year.

  4. What a lovely way to raise money. Your images are so pretty. The name Drogheda... wasn't that the name of the Australian sheep station in the book The Thorn Birds? I love that name.
