St Patrick’s Day 2016 Preparations

With preparations well underway for this year’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade two of this year’s main sponsors Dundalk Credit Union and Fyffes took to the local airwaves with Parade chairperson David Minto to talk about the upcoming festival. The parade is organised and supported by Dundalk Bids and the Dundalk Chamber who work closely together and are pulling out all the stops to create a memorable day for all.

Dundalk FM’s Town Talk host Michael Duffy who is also the St Patrick’s Day parade MC chatted with the three to find out wants coming up and why they are involved. Dundalk Credit Union’s Stewart Agnew said “Dundalk Credit Union is delighted to be one of the main sponsors of this year’s St. Patrick’s Day parade. It is a very significant event for Dundalk and the local community in such a commemorative year and as we are very much at the heart of the community ourselves we felt it very appropriate for Dundalk Credit Union to become involved in what promises to be a memorable family and community event”.

Parade Chairperson David Minto said “Thanks to the parade sponsors Dundalk Credit Union, Fyffes and Louth County Council they have given the Bids and the Chamber team plenty to work with and the spectators of the parade as they will also be entering floats in the Parade this year. We have also hired in three large floats that we hope have the wow factor and these have been kindly sponsored by the Longwalk Shopping Centre“
