The St Patrick’s Day committee has been hard at work organising Kilcock’s 2010 St Patrick’s Day festival – which is only about 6 weeks away! It’s going to be an extra special day for all the community – the annual parade will take place and directly following it will be a new event – The Kilcock Duck Race taking place directly after the parade in the Harbour.
Taking Part in the Parade
All businesses, sporting organisations and community groups are invited to take part in the parade – the theme of this year’s festival is “Our Kilcock” (blush!). The St Patrick’s Day committee and the Kilcock Business Association (who are presenting the Duck Race) are hoping the this year’s festival is the biggest and best in years. Business entries are €80 and club, school or voluntary groups are €40. If you haven’t been involved why not take part this year? There is a minimum of 2 cars per float and further details are can be downloaded: Kilcock St Patrick’s Day Information (PDF).
The parade starts 1.30pm on the 17th March. There are several prize categories for best entries and there is a presentation night in the Kilcock Gaa Club on Saturday 27th March 2010 at 9 pm where all prizes will be presented to all winners.
The St. Patrick’s Day committee meets on Monday nights at 8pm in the GAA club if you would like to go along and assist in preparations.
