st patricks day kilflynn 2024

It’s that time of year again and preparations are in full swing for our annual St Patrick’s Day parade in Kilflynn. It promises to be a day full of music, entertainment, and community spirit in celebration of our Patron Saint of Ireland – St Patrick. So get your community groups together, get practicing your music, and let’s all take part in our parade. The parade and the fancy dress parade will commence at 4.00pm sharp on Sunday 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 25 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.

We appreciate the service the bottle bank provides to our community; however, this facility has been grossly abused by some people who are showing blatant disrespect to the residents of our village and the people of Kilflynn parish by the high level of dumping of rubbish which is currently taking place at the site.
If this dumping continues, we will be left with no option but to discuss with Kerry County Council alternative options open to us, if the issue does not improve and illegal dumping continues in the short term.
We would therefore urge any people using the facility to dispose of their recyclables, and to please bring their rubbish home with them and only use the facility for the sole purpose it was put in place for.
