St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Glenties
The Glenties Community Action Group is holding a St. Patrick’s Day parade in the town this year on Saturday 17th March. They are also attempting a Guinness Book of Records for the most Leprechauns in one place at one time. They are asking everyone in the community to come out and show your support for your local area for this novel event. If you want to take part you can register on or call in to Anne Bonner, Dressmaker on Main Street. The committee appreciate that these are hard times, especially financially for everyone, therefore they have decided that to minimise costs that they would make the costumes, which will be provided at a cost of € 10. They are also making carnival items for the parade. This is being done daily in the Community Centre from 10 a.m. till 4 p.m. Anyone interested in helping out please feel free to call in and help. To make the day a success and a great family day, especially for children, they are asking Business people, Clubs, Groups, Schools and Individuals to consider putting a float into the parade.
