The highlight of the 2018 St Patrick’s Festival programme, the Hugh Green Group St Patrick’s Parade returns to Ponsonby Road on Saturday, March 17. Yes, that’s right – on St Patrick’s Day itself!
Come along and see a huge variety of Irish costumes, floats, bands, faerie folk, Leprechauns, Clydesdale horses and even St Patrick himself.
The parade begins at midday at the corner of Ponsonby Terrace and Ponsonby Rd and heads towards Western Park.
Following the parade, head along to the Irish Music and Dance Festival at Western Park. Enjoy a full programme of Irish music acts curated by Sean Kelly. There will also be traditional Irish dancing, food stalls and children’s activities. The Irish Music and Dance Festival runs from 11am until 6pm.
