No matter where in the country you are you won’t be far from a parade or celebration. We have  over 180 St Patrick’s Day parades from Ardara in Donegal, to Youghal in Cork listed on InspireMe.ie. They will vary in scale and substance, but one thing they will all have in common is a wonderful community behind them. Is there anything more Irish, on our national holiday, than wearing the shamrock while cheering as the freezing under-12 camogie team parade past, followed by a procession of old tractors decorated with balloons?
