Applications are now open for creative, colourful entries for the 2023 St Patrick’s Day Parade in Galway City.

The City Council is now accepting applications from groups that wish to have a float or other display in the coming parade on March 17.

“This is a carnival Parade therefore entries involving costumes, performance, audience interaction, and those having musical accompaniment, are strongly encouraged.”

More information on the Parade Rules is available to download from the city council website.

The deadline for entries is February 20. Application forms can be found online, and submitted to patricksparade@gmail.com or candc@galwaycity.ie.

Last year’s parade was a welcome return of festivities to the streets of Galway, after having been cancelled the two previous years.
