Thousands of people are expected to line the streets of the Clare County Capital on Sunday, March 17th for the 2019 Ennis St. Patrick’s Day Parade.
Clare County Council is once again seeking to make the Ennis Parade a countywide affair with artistic, cultural and sporting groups together with schools, scouts and a range of community groups from all over Clare taking part. In excess of 10,000 people lined the streets of town during the 2018 parade, which featured 40 groups representing the many aspects of life in Ennis and County Clare.
This year there will be prizes awarded for the entrants that provide the “Most Musical & Colourful Spectacle”.
The parade commences at 11.00am from Clare County Council’s Headquarters at Áras Contae an Chláir before proceeding via New Road, Newbridge Road, Club Bridge, Abbey Street, O’Connell Square, O’Connell Street, with participants finishing in the grounds of the Holy Family School, Station Road.
