Clonakilty St. Patrick's Day Parade 2014
Clonakilty Town Twinning Association will again this year organise the Clonakilty St. Patrick's Day Parade on Monday 17th March 2014 at 3.00 p.m.
The parade will start as usual at Faxbridge and finish at the Old Technical School, Western Road, Clonakilty. Participants will assemble in the Ashe Street Car Park (near Community College & Community Hall) at 2.15 p.m.
All entrants are asked to carry a banner, placard or sign identifying their group in order to facilitate the judging of the parade.
The prizemoney will be €1,500 and Entry is free. Any individual, club or organisation requiring further information or wishing to participate can do so by contacting the Twinning Association by using our Contact Form by emailing:
or by completing our entry form which is available in O'Neill's Sports Shop. It is not essential to contact the Twinning Association or to complete an entry form in order to participate and it is normal that people just turn up on the day and take part.
The Clonakilty Brass Band will play at Astna Square before the parade, the Parade will be led by the Reserve Defence Force and the Butter Exchange Band will be the main marching band.
This year's Theme is: Cultural / Musical / Colour but not necessarily, so basically anything goes.
This will be the 20th Parade organised by the Twinning Association and during that period the Parade has gone from strength to strength. Clonakilty Credit Union will again be the major sponsor and without their sponsorship over the years the Parade could not have flourished to become one of the best parades in Ireland.
25th Anniversary Visit to Waldaschaff in 2014
2014 is the 25th Anniversary of the twinning of Clonakilty with Waldaschaff and to celebrate this historic occasion a delegation from Clonakilty will visit Waldaschaff this year from 4th to 11th June 2014. As well as being a reunion for anyone who has lived, worked or visited Waldaschaff at any time over the years, this is a great opportunity for anyone who has never been to Waldaschaff to be part of this historic event and experience the wonderful friendship that exists between our two communities.
