Glenamaddy set for St. Patrick’s Day!

All roads, dusty or otherwise, will once again lead to Glenamaddy for what promises to be a cracker of a St. Patrick’s Day event! The parade will be hosted by the Glenamaddy & District Residents and Traders Association, which is looking to build on the success of previous years in the village.

  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 wonderful day of entertainment.

  “Preparations are on-going, the parade will set off from the community centre at 1 pm and there is no theme as such this year,” he said.

  As well as 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 from members of Robert Mizzell’s band 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 many local individuals and groups taking part, there promises to be plenty of impressive floats on display. Padraig was quick to tell me that those taking part should be looking to impress the judges in attendance as he said there will be prizes for most original, funniest and most topical floats.

  There are lots of fun activities planned throughout the day, as well as quality food and beverages available at local shops, pubs and eateries.

  With so much on offer for what promises to be another great day of family fun, Glenamaddy is certainly the place to be for this year’s St. Patrick’s Day celebrations!
