Spiddal 'Lidl Looting' Float Gets the Local People's Vote for St Patrick's Day Highlight

St Patrick’s Day parades took place throughout Ireland on March 17. However, one particular float in the Galway town of Spiddal caught the attention of many.

Inspired by a now-infamous robbery in early March as Storm Emma hit Dublin involving a digger at a Lidl supermarket, Spiddal natives created a little Lidl and mini digger for their float.

A number of participants even pretended to smash open a safe, as happened during the original incident. Credit: Caveman Grub via Storyful
