17th March 2020 - Bundoran St Patrick's Day Parade

Ahead of the annual St Patrick’s Day parade in Bundoran on March 17th, the theme for this year has been announced as “Welcome” or “Fáilte”.

Bundoran is renowned for its welcome or “Céad Míle Fáilte” to guests from all over the world on an annual basis for hundreds of years now and we thought it more than appropriate that it be theme of our parade this year. It is also particularly fitting as this year we will be welcoming 35 students from 2 colleges in the United States (PIMA College from Tucson, Arizona and Forsythe Community College, North Carolina) as well as a delegation of 16 guests from 5 of our Douzelage Twin Towns across Europe - all of whom will take part in the parade on the 17th of March.

Shane Smyth Bundoran Tourism Officer: ‘St Patrick’s Day really kicks off the season for Bundoran and we’re looking forward to welcoming lots of spectators to experience our national holiday as well as our guests from the United States and Slovenia, Finland, the UK, the Netherlands and Spain.’

Community groups, businesses and other groups are invited to take part in the parade on March 17th by registering at www.discoverbundoran.com/parade
