Moycullen St. Patrick’s Day Parade

Moycullen St. Patrick’s Day Parade Committee/ Coiste Paráid lá Fhéile Pádraig Mhaigh Cuilinn

The second Paráid Lá Fhéile Pádraig in Maigh Cuilinn was a resounding success. Over 50 floats representing commercial companies, sporting and social organisations, local community groups etc. took part.  The colourful floats and the vibrancy of the marching groups livened up a cold but dry day. A large number of spectators lined the route and they thoroughly enjoyed the spectacle.

Bhí balúin agus stiallbhratacha ar fud an tsráidbhaile agus bhí an t-atmaisféar féiltiúil i rith an deireadh seachtaine. Bhí seisiúin ceoil ar an dá ardán agus sna tithe tábhairne i gcaitheamh an lae.

This year, the entries were creative and amusing and after great deliberation the judges chose the following:

Best ‘Overall’ Entry: Mike Joyce Connemara Marble,

Best Float: Lealetter/Gort Uí Lochlainn Community with ‘Galloping Burger’

Best ‘Entry’ by a Club/Organisation: Bootleggers Line Dancing Club

Flóta/Iontráil ‘Gaeilge’ is fearr: Cumann Siúlóide Mhaigh Cuilinn–Fir Pluaise (Cavemen)

‘Scoil’ is fearr:Scoil Naomh Bríd, Tulach Cadhain
