St Patrick’s Day Parade Thurles 2011

The Thurles St Patrick’s Day Parade 2011 was held on Sunday 20th March here in Thurles, where a large gathering of spectators, from near and far came to watch.

This video, of the days events, comes to us courtesy of Thurles videographer Mr Pat Corbett .

We should have further video footage of these St Patrick’s day festivities and details of the prize winners at this event, later in the week.

As we have come to expect, there was a fantastic variety of floats, vintage vehicles, clubs and bands taking part, all performing in jubilant mood and under brilliant sunshine.

We even had a surprise visit from US President Barack Obama and his full security team accompanied by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the terrible twins Jedward even dropped in to keep us entertained.

Sure why would’nt they visit, it is easily the best parade in the county.
