St. Patrick’s Day in Skibbereen

Plans are taking shape for this year’s St Patrick’s Day Parade in Skibbereen, which takes place on Friday 17th March at 4 pm.

The route will start at the Children’s Playground on the Cork Road, move along North Street before turning right into Main St, past the viewing platform on the Bridge and finish in the Fairfield / Old Mart Car Park.

Every year the parade is always a popular family event and this year’s theme is  “Celebrating our Local Heroes” and we have so many to choose from – your local heroes can be inspirational, historical, musical or even sporting!

It is great to see so many people getting involved every year in their local Parade which guarantees fun for all the family.  As in  previous years the Julia Hickey Memorial Trophy will be presented to the overall winner on the day with cash prizes for best community group, best fun group and best theme with spot prizes on the day too!

To finish off the evening in Skibbereen there will be an organised Fireworks Display at 7.30pm in the town, which will be visible from Kennedy Bridge and music in local bars to enjoy too.

We would be delighted to see as many clubs and local community organisations getting involves on the day so please confirm if you are participating, so that we can gauge numbers on the day by sending an email to chamber@skibbereen.ie or text 086 2388300.
