30,000 attend the St. Patrick’s #BrayParade

Over 30,000 people took advantage of stunning spring sunshine to make the Bray Parade one of the most memorable in the town for many years.

Mick Glynn, Chairman of the St. Patrick’s Festival Committee said “This afternoon was a wonderful celebration. It was great to see volunteers from the Fire Service, Civil Defence, local Reserve Defence Forces, visiting matching bands and local community groups really helping to celebrate the spirit of St. Patrick”. 


“We would like to extend a huge thank you to the many volunteers, businesses, families, artists and community groups that helped to make this year’s festival and parade happen. We could not have done it without you”.

“We look forward to welcoming you all back next year,” concluded Mick Glynn.
