St Patrick Day Parade’s in Mayo

Experience the rich culture of Ireland at a series of free events to celebrate St Patrick.  Come to the place of ancient history, where Patrick’s sacred mountain lies and celebrate our Patron Saint.

Ballina Town’s parade takes place this year on Sunday, March 17th from 4:30pm, a mid afternoon start that means that there’s time to take in several of the great parades around North Mayo, if one wishes!

The parade will commence on Mercy Road proceeding from Convent Hill through town,  and will be followed by a super fireworks extravaganza from 7pm at the Salmon Weir Bridge, funded by the local businesses.

Cheer on the energetic procession featuring Ballina’s gifted music and dance groups, talented juvenile sporting clubs, and plethora of  clubs and groups in Ballina. St. Patrick’s Day Parade is a great opportunity to applaud all that makes Ballina a great place to live.
