A Happy St. Patrick’s Day To You From Thurles, Co. Tipperary

“Oh, the summertime is comin’, and the trees are sweetly blooming”.

The Thurles, Co. Tipperary St. Patrick’s Day parade got under-way today at 4.00pm sharp.

Despite low prevailing weather temperatures of below 5°; mostly, I might add, unusual in the Premier County for this time of year; well wrapped viewers turned up in large numbers to support this our National Saints local parade.

While it rained 21 days out of the past 30 days here in Co. Tipperary, and despite a cold 30km/h biting wind, the day remained dry here in Thurles town, with even occasional sunshine; thus, allowing our local parade to pass off, in its usual good humoured, quality style.

Other Parades which took place today included: Cahir – 12.00 noon;  Templemore – 12.30pm; Cashel and Tipperary Town – 2.00pm; Clonmel – 3.00pm; Roscrea – 3.30pm and finally Carrick-on-Suir – 5.30pm, latter followed by fireworks from Ormond Castle.

The North Tipperary town of Nenagh will hold their Annual Parade at 2.00pm tomorrow, Sunday 18th March.

Slide Show Music & Vocals: “Will Ye Go Lassie Go” courtesy of that warm, confident, haunting and hypnotic voice that is Ms Nora Fogarty, from her amazing album “One Star Awake.”
