Green to go

St Patrick's Day parades are back and here are the local start times

AFTER a two-year absence, St Patrick’s Day parades are back in many towns around the county and organisers are hoping for a big turnout.

While Covid-19 hasn’t gone away, restrictions have been lifted and it’s hoped that parades and events to mark St Patrick’s Day will lift community spirits while also recognising the huge loss so many people have had over the past two years.

Here is the latest information The Tuam Herald has for parade start times.

  • Dunmore 12 noon
  • Mountbellew 12 noon
  • Headford 12.45pm
  • Glenamaddy Between 1.30pm
  • Tuam1.45pm
  • Abbeyknockmoy 2pm
  • Clonberne 5pm

Next week’s Tuam Herald will feature a ten-page St Patrick’s Day photo special with coverage of many parades in our area.
