St Patrick’s Day Parade Cahir - Full Details

St Patrick's Day is approaching fast and a call has been made on all community groups and individuals to get involved this year. The theme of the parade is “Patriots “ and the Cahir Bingo Group Will once again be the main sponsors of the event with Cahir Development Association in a supporting role.

Prizes will be awarded in the following categories:

Best Community Float 1st, 2nd and 3rd with a perpetual Cup.

Best Commercial Float 1st and 2nd,

Most Entertaining Entry 1st and 2nd

Best Youth Entry 1st and 2nd

Most unique attempt.

The parade will leave the Business Park on the Tipperary Road at 12noon and will be led again this year by members of Tipperary and Cahir Brass bands. All entries will get a few moments to stop in front of the viewing stand in the Square. If possible we would like all entrants to have a small note ready to hand to the MC about the name of the entry and when established and when they meet etc a contact would also be handy in case of winning a prize. The steward on duty at the stage will take this note to the MC on the day. Entry is free to the parade but anyone wanting to book in should contact Andy on 0863609110 for further details.

This is always a great day out in Cahir and the Ardfinnan Canoe Club will have a Canoe/kayak race from the Mall to the Inch Field after the parade and the Ceoltas will provide some street entertainment.

There is plenty of time left for any group or individual to prepare a float and be involved in our National Day and make it an enjoyable family day out.
