Dundalk’s St. Patrick’s Day parade will be shaken up this year with the main viewing stand, which held its place outside Ulster Bank, now being relocated to Park Street in front of Dunnes Stores.
The repositioning is sure to add a fresh feel to the parade, which is themed around the forthcoming Giro d’Italia.
“With the Giro d’Italia arriving in May, it is exciting to see Dundalk cyclists go pink on St Patrick’s Day in anticipation of the internationally renowned race arriving on our shores this summer,” Brian O’Neill, Chairman of Dundalk BIDS said.
The weekend is set to be fun-filled for the whole family with events taking place on the Saturday, Sunday and Monday. Whether you’d like to browse through the market stalls, view the vintage bike display, take part in a treasure hunt or enjoy a variety of musical, dance or BMX performances, there is something here for you. There will also be bouncy castles and children’s rides at the Market Square.
The Tain Theatre will be showcasing lots of Dundalk’s local talent with names including David Martin of The Three Tenors and TG4 award winner Rosie Stewart performing, with compere Paudie Breen a great night suitable for the whole family is guaranteed.
The annual craft and food market will take place again this year showcasing local producers and crafts people.
