Crowds will flock to beach for Ireland's most unique St. Patrick's Day parade
EVERY year the coastal village of Duncannon offers Ireland's most unique St Patrick's Day Parade bringing visitors and locals alike onto the stunning crescent shaped beach.
This year's St Patrick's Day Parade in Duncannon begins at 4 p.m. at the Star of the Sea church, while activities for all the family kick off on the beach at 2 p.m. with bouncy castles, archery, a golfball run, trampoline, penalty competition, soccer tournament, cake stalls on the green, with tea and coffee services, and a local crafts exhibition featuring the work of students from Ramsgrange Community School.
Seamus Long and the Deputies will provide musical entertainment on the day and the award winning New Ross & District Pipe band will be performing.
There is always a great atmosphere in the seaside village on the day, which, for many, is their first visit to a beach in the calendar year.
