St Patrick’s Day 2016 Launch

Music and dance were the highlight at the launch of this year’s St Patrick’s Day Parade which was held in An Tain Theatre on Thursday evening. The parade committee where delighted to have local man Michael Murphy and his family in attendance following his appointment as this year’s parade Grand Marshall, Michael celebrated his 100th Birthday on the 16th February which ties in perfectly with the parade theme of ‘A Century Past – Reeling Through the Years’.

Parade orgaisers Dundalk Bids and Dundalk Chamber were also delighted to welcome representatives from our main sponsors, Gerry Cunningham from Fyffes, Tom Darcy from Dundalk Credit Union and Cllr Maria Doyle from Louth County Council whose support will go towards creating a great family and community day on the 17th of March. Elaine McGeough from the Longwalk Shopping Centre who is sponsoring one of the main floats for the parade said “Each year the parade is growing and getting better and this year we hope that the main float will really have that Wow factor and have people talking for years to come”.
