St. Patrick’s Day in Monaghan
St. Patrick’s Day was celebrated in the usual fashion in Monaghan town with the Run for Crocus starting at 12.30 and then the Parade at 3pm. The weather was good, though cold, but the rain stayed away. There was an increase in the number of Floats and all of them displayed ingenuity and a lot of preparation and all seemed to be enjoying themselves except maybe for the leprechaun on the bed on the Drumbriston float. St. Patrick seemed to have more trouble with the bear than the original Patrick had with the snakes. There was only one marching band, Monaghan Community Brass Band, which are always a joy to hear and see but more bands would have broken up the parade better. I also noticed a few empty seats on the Review stand and the Irish music before the parade arrives certainly sets the scene though it was missing this year too. There was certainly a huge number of spectators to enjoy the parade and many of these were visitors so well done to the organisers and all who took part - you promoted the town well.
