Taghmon parade is on TV
PARTICIPANTS in Taghmon's second annual St. Patrick's Day Parade had the distinction of appearing on television. The afternoon parade which featured dozens of floats and marching groups, was broadcast on the RTE television news on St. Patrick's night. RTE sent television cameras to the village to capture some of the highlights of the event which set off from the community centre at 2 p.m.
Participants of all ages marched in the parade including footballers, youth clubs and mother-and-toddler groups.
Afterwards, there was a carnival atmosphere in the square where Blue Moose played a free open-air concert.
