Opening Parade of the European Mounted Games 2019

The Millstreet Pipe Band lead the parade of 17 European Countries from Green Glens up through the town where the official opening was declared in the Town Square. It was followed by music and a wonderful international social evening. Below are lots of photos and videos from the evening:
