2019 Carrigaline St Patrick’s Day Parade
The 2019 Carrigaline will start at 1:30pm on March 17th 2019
This year’s Grand Marshall and Master of Ceremonies for 2019, two people that truly represent the community spirit.
Our Grand Marshall will be Finbarr Spillane, founder of the Homeless Drive, a team of volunteers that work tirelessly to provide food and comfort to the homeless people of Cork. You can find them at their unit in the Donnybrook Industrial Estate in Douglas or on the Homeless Drive Facebook page.
The MC for the day and voice of the parade will be Willie Walsh, not only the Chairperson of Carrigaline United AFC but also a volunteer with the Carrigaline Family Support Centre among other organisations in the town.
The parade will be led by the Carrigaline Pipe Band with the Kieran Kramer Show Band bringing up the rear. All the sports clubs in the locality are marching while the Men’s Shed, Cogan’s Garage and Robert’s Cove Vintage Club are amongst the floats.
The parade begins at Dairygold at 1.30pm and people are asked to wear green and join in the festive spirit. Anyone within walking distance is asked to come on foot and motorists are asked to please keep the Main Street clear for the duration of the parade.
