Friday March 17th, 2017
There will be big changes to this year’s 2017 Portlaoise La Feile Padraig or St Patrick’s Day parade in Portlaoise The parade will start 12.30pm and beginning at County Hall , follow a much shorter route, heading down towards Supermacs and going around the roundabout to come back up to Market Square and then down Main Street.
It is hoped that the changes will draw the crowds to the town for the annual event, and help bring the community together.
The parade will now begin directly after the Portlaoise Athletic Club’s street race which starts at 11.30pm and it is hoped that people will stay out on the day to see the parade, and the street entertainment afterwards
“2017 Portlaoise St. Patrick’s Day Parade or 2017 Portlaoise La Feile Padraig is an event not to be missed! This is the perfect opportunity to showcase the best Laois has to offer, to those living locally and abroad, who will descend on Laois to celebrate this very auspicious day.”
