3/17/2007 Sister Fidelma is the Grand Marshal

March 17, 2007.  Happy St. Patrick's Day to you!

Nine years ago the town of Cashel in County Tipperary, Ireland had a rather special Grand Marshal for their annual St. Paddy's Day parade.  Special because she is a brilliant detective.  Special because she was born in the seventh century.  And special because she is fictional.

Sister Fidelma was created by Peter Tremayne who has written more than twenty novels about her.  She was a nun, then a lawyer, and in the great tradition of the field, she keeps finding dead bodies and puzzles to solve.

You can see some pictures of the festivities here.
