St Patrick’s Day Update

With less than three weeks to go until the Dundalk St Patrick’s Day Parade Events sponsored by Dundalk Credit Union Ltd, there are more updates about the event which draws in thousands to the Dundalk Town Centre.

The Parade of course has an Organising Committee but on the day Volunteers are needed to help ensure the smooth running of the Parade from Castletown Road to Dublin Street as well as help with the post parade events including the food market area and the Pelican Promotion Family Fun Zone in association with Dundalk Credit Union Ltd.

Organising Committee Chairperson, David Minto outlined the vital role played by volunteers every March 17th in Dundalk.

“Our Volunteers are essential to carrying out all our plans and to make sure everyone who visits the Town Centre that day enjoys themselves in safety. The more Volunteers we have, the easier it is for everybody all round. We provide light refreshments during the day and we are really appreciative of everybody who gives of their time to help, especially as it’s on our national holiday.”

If you are a Dundalk Retailer then you can join in the St Patrick’s Day celebrations by dressing your window in the ‘Dream Big Dundalk’ theme. The window display completion has been running for a number of years with many businesses putting a lot of effort into their windows which also brightens up the Town Centre and adds to the festive of the day.

Entries for groups, associations and businesses to take part in the Parade itself is open until March 9th. All participants are being asked to integrate the ‘Dream Big Dundalk’ Theme into their parade entry.

Of course if you are not in a position to volunteer or enter the window display, you can join the thousands of people who simply come into Dundalk to watch the Parade and enjoy all the fringe events.

To Volunteer for St Patrick’s Day, or to enter the Window Display Competition or the Parade itself, contact Dundalk Chamber of Commerce at 042 9336343 or
