The 'St Petrick's Day' parade is coming to Bundoran
Rising discontentment among the pets of Donegal has seen a change of heart by organisers of this year's Bundoran's St Patrick's Day parade. Well not exactly, but pet lovers across the country will no doubt be very interested in this first for the popular resort parade which has been forced to take a sabbatical since 2019, because of Covid-19.
So now, as part of the celebrations for the national holiday on March 17, the Bundoran parade will incorporate “St PETrick’s Day” where they are inviting pet owners to participate in the parade through town.
Parade Director John O’Connell said:
"We’ve had a lot of interest from community groups and businesses wishing to take part in the parade this year which we are very grateful for. However we want to include as many people as possible and we’re inviting people to parade their pets with us too. So we would encourage any pet owners that would like to take part.
The parade committee is also announcing that they will broadcast the parade live on the day on the Discover Bundoran Facebook page.
Bundoran Tourism Officer Shane Smyth added:
"While we know that many people will be in Bundoran for the parade, we are also aware that many people cannot make it on the day so once again we will make a live broadcast of the parade available through the Discover Bundoran Facebook page on the day so viewers can experience the next best thing! It will be available for anyone to watch across the globe on the day.’
Information on everything happening in Bundoran will be available at www.discoverbundoran.com/stpatricksday where you can also sign up for your pet to participate in this year's St PETrick's Day event.
