After speaking with organisers of the Elphin St. Patrick’s Day Parade, it seems that the town of Elphin is getting ready for a big day of fun next Friday.
Gordon Murray says the there is huge interest in next week’s parade.
“This year’s St. Patrick’s Day parade starts at 3 pm at the usual place, the convent at the bottom of the town. There will be €1,000 in prize-money on offer with the best overall float winning €500 and the Seamus Nolan perpetual cup,” he said.
With free entry for floats and five prizes overall, there have been plenty of entries to this year’s parade already.
However, Gordon believes the parade is just one part of what promises to be great family day out.
He added: “There will be face painting and music and plenty of other stuff going on too. We are expecting a big parade in Elphin next week!”
