The County Gears Up For St Patrick’s Day


Preparations are in their final stages for the numerous St Patrick’s Day parades taking place across the county.

The FAI’s John Delaney will be the Grand Marshal of Tipperary Town’s parade which kicks off at 3pm from O’Connell Road.

In Cashel, the town centre will be free of traffic from 1.30pm and the parade begins at 2pm.

The Clonmel parade starts at 3.30pm in Irishtown.
