Dundalk’s St. Patricks day parade will be shaken up this year! The main viewing stand, which held its place outside Ulster Bank for many years, will now be 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. Brian O’Neill, Chairman of Dundalk BIDS said “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.”
The weekend is set to be fun-filled for the whole family with events taking place on the Saturday, Sunday and Monday. The town centre will be buzzing with crowds who are sure to find something to their liking with the wide range of entertainment being provided. 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 to ensure the kids are kept entertained.
The Tain Theatre will be showcasing lots of Dundalk’s local talent in a performance on Sunday 16th March. 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 St. Patrick’s Craft & Fabulous Food Market will take place again this year showcasing local producers and crafts people on the 16th & 17th of March.
