Google Maps has done something very cool to celebrate Pride

Everyone's getting in the spirit.

This is class.

Everyone’s been getting into the swing of the Pride festivities across Dublin all week ahead of the parade later.

The bunting is out, the glitter is ready to go and we’re all praying for it to stay dry to celebrate all things LGBTQ in style today.

Now even Google Maps has gotten in on the act with by marking out the new parade route in rainbow colours on the app.

This year’s parade route is different to previous years to facilitate Luas works in the city centre.

It’s set to take off from Stephen’s Green South at 2pm, though there’ll be a rally at the start point from midday.

The parade will go along Cuffe St, Kevin St, Patrick St, Nicolas St, High St, Bridge St, Church St and North King St and will finish in Smithfield Square for the official Pride Afterparty.
