Thurles St. Patrick’s Day Parade 2017.

The Thurles 2017 St. Patrick’s Day Parade will take place on Friday March 17th, beginning at 4pm from Abbey Road, Thurles, Co. Tipperary.

Thurles St. Patrick’s Day Committee are inviting entrants to register their participation in the parade. This years theme is ‘Sporting Heroes Throughout The Ages’ providing plenty of scope for local clubs and organisations to highlight major sporting achievements or sporting heroes over the years. There is a total of €2,500 in prize funds and trophies for a wide variety of categories from the ‘Best Marching Band’ to the ‘Best Float’ and ‘Best School Entry’.

There will be a number of attractions, consisting of marching bands, the Jim O’ The Mills traditional group will play in the centre of Liberty Square and in the lower square there will be a new small animal attraction with other street entertainment.

The Thurles Parade is very dependent on sponsorship and the committee are asking that all sponsors old and new would give generously and enable Thurles to provide a St. Patrick’s Day Parade worthy of the town.

For more details on entry forms and sponsorship please contact the Chairperson, Johnny Kenehan at 087-9964587.

    If there is a prize for best window display get the Judges to have a look at the Library in the Source. The library attendant is making a big effort at the moment, FAIR PLAY. Paudie

    Judges & Organisers of Thurles St. Patricks Day Parade don’t ever communicate with Thurles.Info for some unknown reason. But hopefully one or other may read your comment.

    My God George what type of Judges and especially the Organisers do Thurles have? Without you George and Thurles Information, we expats on this side of the world would be lost. The Judges and Organisers of Thurles owe it to Thurles people to do the right thing by them and communicate with you George the very person who knows the Thurles people so well. Thank you George for all your help you give us so freely. I can’t wait to see your pictures of the Thurles St. Patrick’s Day parade. ‘A HAPPY ST. PATRICK’S DAY TO YOU AND ALL OUR FRIENDS IN THURLES.’ I can’t join in the dancing this year got a bad knee. But our Thurles expats will make up for that. We will be thinking of you all.

    Katie & Expats.
