Beautiful Town of Kinsale Welcomes Back St Patrick’s Day Parade
after a Six Year Absence
Preparations are under way for a homecoming parade in the beautiful
harbour town of Kinsale as a whole day’s celebrations are planned,
culminating in a never to be forgotten parade on the sea.
School groups, community groups, artists, actors, musicians, performers,
sports stars and proud West Cork citizens are all joining the Kinsale St
Patrick’s Day Parade as it returns to the picturesque streets of Kinsale this
“Kinsale is famous for its gorgeous scenery, fine food, great bars and cafés,
and pretty streets, Kinsale also abounds in community spirit, so I am
delighted that Kinsale will have a St. Patrick’s Day Parade this year” said
Mayor of Kinsale, Fred Treacy.
The fun kicks off at 1pm with street entertainment and busking, while the
parade itself starts at 4pm. Afterwards, dance to a Ceiií and work up an
appetite for drinks and dinner in one of Kinsale’s world-famous bars, cafés
and restaurants before the grand finale, the night parade – on the harbour
waters at 7.30pm!
