St Patricks Day Parades

March 17 - March 18

Please note: Mullingar Town Band are fully booked for St Patricks Day 2024. If you would like to book the band for future events please contact us

 

Mullingar Town Band is thrilled to unveil our program for the upcoming St. Patrick’s Day parades.

Our day begins with the Tullamore Parade at 11:30 AM, where we’ll proudly lead the procession from the Bridge Centre to the Kilbeggan bridge. Following this, at 12:30 PM, we’ll join the Clara Parade, led by the Clara Town Band. It’s worth noting that Bertie McMahon has been organising this parade since the late 80s, and MTB has been a regular participant over the years.

Next on our journey is the Moate Parade, starting at 1:30 PM. We were warmly welcomed during our first participation in 2023, and the positive reception has spurred our return this year. The parade kicks off from the gap house, promising a lively celebration.

In Mullingar, after a hiatus, the town parade made a triumphant comeback in 2023. Last year, we were excited to welcome St. Patrick arriving by barge on the canal on the 16th. While we couldn’t participate in the main parade due to prior commitments, we’re delighted that the town now boasts a full parade again, commencing at 3:00 PM from the green bridge and concluding at Nugents corner.

Wrapping up our local parades, we head to Castlepollard for their parade at 5:00 PM, a tradition we’ve upheld for over 30 years. The warm reception we receive each year is a testament to the strong community spirit in Castlepollard.

Despite a packed schedule with five parades in one day, our journey doesn’t end there. On Monday, March 18th, we’ll be off to the Limerick International Band Championship. This event in Limerick City at Arthurs Quay promises a wonderful opportunity to connect with fellow Irish bands and enjoy performances from international bands who have traveled to partake in the St. Patrick’s Day festivities.
