A vibrant celebration of ‘An Domhan trí Dhathanna / A World of Colour’

Prepare to be dazzled by an eclectic mix of community groups and an expanded parade route, all coming together to bring the theme of ‘A World of Colour/ An Domhan trí Dhathanna’ to life. Tralee Chamber, in partnership with Kerry County Council and The Rose Hotel, this week unveiled the 2024 St Patrick’s Day parade theme.

Stephen Stack, President of Tralee Chamber said, “St. Patrick’s Day Parade Tralee has always been a vibrant celebration of our unique community spirit and cultural diversity. This year’s theme, ‘A World of Colour/ An Domhan trí Dhathanna’ encapsulates the essence of what makes our parade so special – the kaleidoscope of colours, cultures and joy that come together to create an unforgettable experience. We invite everyone to join us as we embrace the richness of our cultures and celebrate the unity that brings us together.”

The Mayor of Tralee, Cllr. Terry O’Brien, encouraged everyone to come out and enjoy the St. Patrick’s Day Parade and the festivities in the town over the long weekend. “Tralee’s parade is always a highlight in the calendar and is a great occasion for all ages. A great deal of voluntary work goes into planning the parade every year and this year, it is no different. It promises to be a really special occasion and Tralee Municipal District is proud to support this wonderful community event.”

Dick & Eibhlin Henggeler, Owners of The Rose Hotel, said: “We are honoured to join with Tralee Chamber in co-sponsoring this year’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade. As a cornerstone of the Tralee community, we recognise the importance of coming together to celebrate our shared heritage and values. The theme ‘A World of Colour’ perfectly encapsulates the diversity and vibrancy of Irish culture, and we are eager to contribute to this memorable event.” 

This year’s parade promises to be a spectacular celebration like no other, embracing the beauty and diversity of our world through an explosion of vibrant inflatables, dazzling costumes, and the joyous participation of cultures from around the globe. Leading the procession as Grand Marshal is the illustrious St. Brendan’s Basketball Club, celebrating 30 years of excellence and community spirit.

Experience a fresh new route as the parade kicks off at The Rose Hotel on to Michels Road, winding through Boherbee and Castle Street before culminating in the vibrant atmosphere of Denny Street. Joining the celebration are dynamic hosts Jamie Flannery, Sean Crowley, and Brian Hurley, whose infectious energy and witty banter will keep excitement levels soaring throughout the event.

This year’s parade will once again feature the inclusion of the Sensory Street, a dedicated route along Boherbee designed to provide a welcoming and inclusive viewing experience for individuals with autism. This ensures that everyone can enjoy the magic of the parade.

Prepare to be captivated by mesmerising street performers who will entertain along the parade route, building excitement and anticipation for the main event. These talented artists will continue to spread cheer even after the parade concludes, including music by fantastic DJs stationed at two key locations: the viewing stand in Castle Street and the lively hub in Boherbee, enhancing the parade experience with rhythm and energy.
