All roads lead to Monaghan Town on St. Patrick’s Day, Tuesday 17th March, to celebrate the best of what Monaghan has to offer at the annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade.
The parade kicks off at 3 pm and promises to be a great fun day out for all the family. Starting point for all entrants is the Lower Courthouse Car Park.
The theme this year is ‘Giants of Monaghan” and participants are asked to incorporate this theme into their entry.
Prizes will be awarded for Best Commercial Float, Best Community Float incorporating the use of the Irish language, and Best Marching Band. An award will also be given to the best window display incorporating the use of the Irish Language and also for the most innovative float.
The organising Committee would like to encourage as many people from the town and surrounding communities to become involved and participate in this year’s parade. We would encourage Businesses to sponsor/adopt a community group and work together to enter a float.
