Details of Millstreet St.Patrick’s Day Parade 2016

MILLSTREET ST PATRICKS DAY COMMITTEE

Hello all, please find below details of the St Patricks day parade in Millstreet.

CHANGE IN PARADE ROUTE

2016 marks the start of a new chapter for Millstreet St Patricks Day Parade, as we are changing the route the parade takes. The parade will now commence in the front carpark of the Green Glens on the Station Road. This change was due to increases in the numbers of individuals and floats taking part over the last number of years. For the first time in a long time we will have all participates in the one place, this will ensure that we will be able to maintain our high level of safety and comfort we offer to all taking part.

The route is as follows

Starting in the Green Glens Carpark Station Road at 5.00 pm, taking a left at Corkery’s corner, up to viewing stand in the square and will break up at the turn off for the fair field carpark in Minor row.

This will enable people to get back into the square quickly and also access the carpark. For vehicles wishing to return back up to the square, you may turn at the Dairygold front carpark.

1916

Millstreet St Patricks Day Parade committee have introduced a new category this year to commemorate 1916, we are looking for individuals and groups to take part. [read more …] “Details of Millstreet St.Patrick’s Day Parade 2016”

Something Special

St.Patrick’s Day is always very busy for Millstreet Pipe Band. On Tuesday they started early at Ballydaly mass, followed by Millstreet mass at 11:30, followed by the Killarney Parade at 2pm, and finally back to the Millstreet Parade at 5pm.

Now our Pipe Band always play during St.Patrick’s Day mass in St.Patrick’s Church Millstreet, so when it was mentioned the week before that they would be played again this year, I was happy because it’s always nice, but didn’t take extra special notice of it.

But … what they played as the reflection after communion turned out to be something unexpectedly special. It started with a number of pipers playing from the altar, but then the church organ started to play at the opposite end of the church, and as the musicians played, for a few precious minutes as the low bass vibrations of the organ and the pipers passed through us, everyone was enthralled by beauty and emotion of the moment, as the hairs stood on the back of our necks … and it was of course followed by a rapturous applause.  Truly, a moment not to be forgotten.
