Tyrrellspass already planning 2024 parade

The picturesque village of Tyrrellspass looked resplendent for this year’s St Patrick’s Day parade as premises were colourfully decorated and the local community were out in force to celebrate the national feast day.

As the shutters came down on the 2023 parade, the chairperson of the organising committee, Susanne Dunne, announced that plans for next year’s parade are already almost complete.

“Tyrrellspass parade will be back in full glory in 2024,” she said.

Ms Dunne said she was delighted with the turnout for this year’s celebrations, which were moved from the village green to the pavilion because of adverse weather conditions.

“There was a massive turn out and we were delighted with it,” she said, adding that it was heartening that people chose to attend the Tyrrellspass parade when there was so much going on all over the country.

She thanked those who attended and the participants and entertainers for their support in making the 2023 parade a huge success and promised even bigger and better next year.
