Getting ready for St Patrick's Day

NOW that our national feast day is fast approaching the Kanturk and District Community are busy getting ready for the annual St Patrick's Day parade.

No matter what preparations the community council make they will be no good without the participation of the people of Kanturk and further a field. This year the council are encouraging everyone in Kanturk and district to join in and be part of this great day.

The parade, as in former years, will gather at the hospital car park and travel via Hospital Hill, Percival Street, The Square, Main Street and on to Strand Street where the viewing stand for the dignitaries will be situated.

The parade will commence at 2.30pm and there will be prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd.

Business people are encouraged to decorate their premises in traditional style as there will be a prize for the best-dressed window.
