AUDIENCES OF UP TO HALF A MILLION ON THE STREET FOR THE FESTIVAL PARADE

The streets of the capital were transformed on the 17th of March with colour, fun and dramatic spectacle as the 2017 St. Patrick’s Festival Parade made its way through the heart of Dublin to celebrate our national holiday. Pageant companies and community arts projects from around the country, and marching bands and performers from all over the globe, delighted the cheering crowds who were enchanted by the magical atmosphere and awe inspiring creative presentations. Irish sailor and Olympic silver medallist Annalise Murphy (27) had the honour of leading the parade as Grand Marshal.
