“Biggest parade ever” in Boyle

The town of Boyle is gearing up for what it hopes will be the “biggest parade ever” this St. Patrick’s Day.

  The local parade will start at 3 pm from Mockmoyne via Bridge Street as it makes its way to the Crescent where it will finish.

  With great prizes to be won it’s not too late to enter a float. With the overall winning float receiving €500, it’s probably a good idea to get those thinking caps on over the next few days.

  Other prizes include: Runner-up (€200), Third place (€100), Tradition and Heritage (€200), Under-16 Junior Section 1st prize (€200) with runners-up in this section getting €100.

  If you own a business in the area, then don’t forget to make an effort next week, as the Best Shop Window will receive a prize of €100 also!

  So if you fancy winning a cool €500 next week why not drop into one of the many agents currently stocking float entry forms. Forms are available at the following businesses: Una Bhan Craft Shop, and Clarke’s Bar & Restaurant, Creightons, Wynne’s and An Craoibhin.

  Organisers have promised us that this year’s Boyle parade will be the biggest yet, so grab friends and family and get yourself a good spot along the route.

  St. Patrick’s Day in Boyle promises to be a great day of entertainment for all the family!
