PARTICIPANTS WANTED FOR TRALEE’S ST. PATRICK’S DAY PARADE
It may only be February, but preparations are already well underway for this year’s St Patrick’s Day parade in Tralee. With last year’s St. Patrick’s Day celebrations attracting record numbers on to Denny Street, 2023 is gearing up to be another astounding, vibrant and colourful display of Irish culture and celebratory spirit – so why not be part of the celebrations!
Oliver Hurley from Oliver Hurley Productions is asking all those interested in participating in this year’s St. Patrick’s Day parade to complete an application form online. Speaking on this year’s planned festivities, he commented:
“This year’s “Cúpla Focal” parade aims to honour and showcase our Irish Language and the search is on for participants to take part.”
Participants of all ages are wanted, from all communities and walks of life across Tralee – from sporting clubs, dance schools, social clubs and everything in between.
Oliver went on to add:
“We all have a cúpla focal hidden away somewhere in the vault. The theme of this year’s parade will remind us that it still exists – even if it is only the Cúpla Focal.”
All participating groups are encouraged to embrace the ‘Cúpla Focal’ parade by incorporating the Irish language and all things as Gaeilge as a theme.
The Tralee St Patricks Day Parade 2023 will take place on Friday 17th March at 12.00pm noon starting from the John Joe Sheehy Road, Tralee.
