Thurles St. Patrick’s Day Parade Update.

Welcome To Our 2023 Thurles St. Patrick’s Day Parade.

Mr Johnny Kenehan (Chairperson St. Patrick’s Day Committee) Reports: –

The Thurles St. Patrick’s Day Parade Committee are delighted to announce that for this year’s St. Patrick’s Parade 2023, we have very special guests; two young extraordinarily brave siblings Micháel Bourke and Katie Butler Haughney from Tipperary, who rescued their 2-year-old brother Daniel from a waterhole on February 11th 2020.
For their bravery and quick thinking Micháel and Katie were awarded a Bronze Medal. They will be invited onto the reviewing stand as Guests of Honour and feted for their efforts. Two great heroes in a world of need of such young inspiring people.

Further update on this year’s parade. [March 17th, 2023]

This years parade will assemble at 1.30pm and start at 2.15pm in Abbey Road at JYSK .

Liberty Square will be closed off from traffic at the Slievenamon Road junction from 2:00pm with no entry unto lower Liberty Square, [Diversions will be in place].
Entry from Cathedral Street will also close from 2:00pm and traffic will be diverted via Emmet Street.

Heavy vehicles in the parade will enter Cathedral Street, to turn at the roundabout for dispersal also onto Emmet Street.
