Roscommon Easter Parade moves Monday due to big Mayo clash!

This year’s Easter Parade in Roscommon town – always a major social event – is being switched to Easter Monday, to accommodate GAA supporters planning to attend Roscommon’s big Connacht Championship game against Mayo the previous day.

Normally the Roscommon Easter Parade takes place on Easter Sunday, but the parade committee has recognised this year’s particular circumstances and made the decision to switch the event to Easter Monday.

Roscommon senior footballers will play Mayo in the 2023 Connacht Senior Football Championship quarter-final at MacHale Park, Castlebar on Sunday, April 9th.

Roscommon Easter Parade Committee held its AGM on Wednesday, February 8th last, after which the following statement was issued to the Roscommon People: “Following our AGM, a decision has been made to hold this year’s Easter Parade on Easter Monday, 10th of April 2023 at 2.30 pm. The decision to move the parade to the Monday is in recognition of the fact that the Roscommon senior football team have a major championship fixture against Mayo on Easter Sunday. The parade committee wishes manager Davy Burke and the team the very best in this game. We look forward to a very enjoyable weekend for all in Roscommon”.

This year’s Roscommon Easter Parade will follow the usual route from Abbeytown to Castle Street, via Main Street and The Square.
