There was a great turnout for the Athy St. Patrick’s Day parade.

Speaking on behalf of the local organisers, the Athy Town Promoters Group, Brian O’Gorman stated; “We were particularly happy with the large turnout for this year’s parade, which had a homecoming theme for the Gathering festivals and events taking place in town over the coming months.”

Athy International Concentrates (Coca Cola) are celebrating 40 years in Athy and were joint main sponsor of the parade, with Athy Town Council. An awards presentation evening will take place for winning floats this Friday, March 22 in the Athy Heritage Centre Museum where the best floats and groups will be chosen.
