ST. PATRICK’S DAY PARADE
KILFLYNN is all set for their annual St Patrick’s Day parade. The parade and the fancy dress parade will commence at 4.00pm sharp on Friday 17th March from St Teresa’s National School and make its way through the village. All those interested in participating in the parade please assemble at the school at 3.30pm. Any organisations, businesses or individuals wishing to take part in this year’s parade are very welcome to do so.
Kilflynn Community Together are organising this year’s St Patrick’s Day parade and are hoping to build on last year’s success where over 20 groups took part.
Again, this year there will be a trophy and €100 for the best float, €50 for 2nd place, and €25 for 3rd place, and all fancy-dress participants will be presented with a medal after the parade in St. Columba’s centre. It will be a wonderful gathering of the Kilflynn and surrounding communities, awash with colour and imagination! Hope to see you all in Kilflynn
