Plans are well underway for this year's St. Patrick's Day in Skibbereen.
Events start on Sunday 16th March when Skibbereen Comhaltas host their Annual Branch Féile Cheoil in Rossa College. Competitions are open to everyone Under 16 and what a great way to start our annual feast day with traditional music, song and dance. Please see the seperate Féile Cheoil post for further details.
St Patrick's Day Church services take place in Abbestrewery at 10 am and in St. Patrick's Cathedral at 9 am and 11:30 am.
The Parade in Skibbereen will start at 2:30pm on Monday March 17 from the Children's Playground on the Cork Road. It will continue along North St, turning right at the Square into Main St, past the viewing stage at the Bridge and finishing in the Fairfield.
Local Clubs, Schools and Businesses will be taking part and it promises to be a fun-filled afternoon for all the family!
