Glenamaddy gears up for carnival atmosphere

Organisers are calling on the community of Glenamaddy and local townlands to come out in force for the St. Patrick’s Day parade next Thursday (March 17th).

  Floats and local clubs and groups will assemble at the Community Centre at 12 pm and the parade itself will commence at 12.30 pm sharp.

  Local businessman, Padraig Raftery, has sent an invitation to all members of the community and surrounding areas, asking them to come out in force and support what promises to be a great day of entertainment.

  “We’re looking for as many floats as possible for this year’s St. Patrick’s Day parade and we want everyone to come out! We’ve plenty of local floats ready, local and the surrounding area,” said Padraig.

  As well the parade, there promises to be a carnival atmosphere in the town with entertainment for everyone. Padraig continued, “We’ve great music on the street and there’s entertainment in all the pubs afterwards and of course you can watch all the games on TV afterwards too. It should be a great day in the town!”

  Of course with all these local individuals and groups taking part there promises to be plenty of impressive floats in display. Padraig was quick to tell me that those taking part should be looking to impress the judges in attendance.

  He said, “There will be prizes for most original, funniest and most topical floats. It’s great how all the groups just come together on the day.”

  Glenamaddy continues its preparations ahead of what promises to be a great day of family entertainment in the day.
