Here in New Zealand, we should be proud (and consider ourselves mighty lucky) to have so far successfully navigated the pandemic. This makes the annual Auckland St Patrick’s Parade one of only a few Irish celebrations of scale globally in 2021.
But we need your help to make this happen! Previous cancellations of the parade due to adverse weather, the shooting in Christchurch in 2019 and now COVID-19 have had a major impact on the financial viability of the parade.
We are asking the Irish community to please, please be very generous in making a donation and promoting our effort to keep the celebration going for us in New Zealand and on behalf of the Irish diaspora around the world.
Donations can be made at this independent fundraising platform:
We hope to see you all at the Parade on Saturday, 13th March! More details to follow
