Cork’s St Patrick’s Festival 2018 – Road Closures

 

This year’s Cork St. Patrick’s Day Parade will take place in the heart of the City on Saturday, March 17th 2018.

Celebrating the theme of Democracy For All – 100 Years of the Vote for Women, join us in the City Centre for a carnival of colour, music,  pageantry and comic fun.

 

The Parade will begin at 1.00 pm at South Mall, travelling via Grand Parade, St. Patrick’s Street, turning on to Merchant’s Quay and culminating at the junction of Merchant’s Quay and Parnell Place at approximately 3.30 pm. It is anticipated the Parade will have up to 2500 participants and attract up to 50,000 spectators.
