There are just 6 weeks remaining until the Boyle St. Patrick’s Day Parade takes place and the first meeting in preparation for what promises to be a spectacular day was held Tuesday evening in Clarkes Bar.
Special welcome to the many publicans who have committed to help in the organisation of the event, An Craoibhin, Clarkes, Creightons, Wynnes and The Moylurg.
The working group expressed their delight at new members getting involved and expressed their sincere gratitude to Alice Mattimoe for her dedication over the last 20 years to the Boyle Parade and their sadness at her leaving us.
The Parade will take place on St Patricks Day Thursday 17th March at 3pm.
