On the 17th of March at 5 pm the Rooskey Heritage Festival Committee are holding Rooskey’s first ever St. Patrick’s Day Parade.
The committee have invited local businesses, community groups and organisations to take part. They are delighted with the response to date.
The RHF committee are anticipating in excess of 35 various different groups.
“We are hoping to fill our village with colour, sounds and good family fun” said Margaret Healy, a member of the committee.
“It is a great opportunity for us to promote Rooskey in a positive light and of course to encourage people to support our festival.”
The Kilmore Vintage Club are playing a big part by bringing a float and also some vintage cars, the Flintstones Car will make an appearance, the newly-formed Men’s Shed group are keen to put on a dynamic display and also rumour has it that a family of leprechauns are making their way to Rooskey from Leitrim Village.
It promises to be an entertaining day for old and young alike and the RHF committee hope it’s the start of many more to come.
