THE CLONDALKIN ST Patrick’s Day is looking for participants, reports Brendan Grehan.
The theme of the parade/festival this year will be 1916. The plan this year is to hold a parade in Clondalkin village.

Last year, thousands turned up to celebrate the national holiday. The committee had a relatively short time to put everything in place but it turned out to be a great success.The parade has the potential to be a great family day out.

Councillor Francis Timmons told The Echo: “After a small parade in Corkagh Park last year, we are very hopeful of a village parade this year.

We need to get moving if a Parade is going to happen in Clondalkin in 2016 – we need volunteers for many different roles, we need groups, clubs and organizations to take part, we need music, we need people to dress up, we need sponsors, we need help if parade1916 is going to happen in Clondalkin.

“Please think about what part you can play and let us know asap. We also need volunteers to dress as various characters to make the parade colorful and a great family day out.’’

You can contact Cllr Timmons https://www.facebook.com/ClondalkinStPatricksDayParade or Phone 0872869315.

This has the potential to develop into an important annual Clondalkin family event. The parade website is at http://clondalkinstpatricksfestival.ie/ where you can register under different headings. 

Clondalkin Tidy Towns, Clondalkin Localise and Clondalkin senior citizens are already onboard. The organisers are looking forward to schools, clubs and organisations participating in the festival.
