Positivity for Cobh St. Patrick’s Day Parade 2011



Cobh Gaa On The March At The 2010 Cobh Parade

The 2011 Cobh St. Patrick’s Day Parade will take place on Thursday March 17th starting at “The Bench” at 3.30 pm.

Three dynamic groups, See You in Cobh, Cobh Tourism and Cobh Tidy Towns Committee have joined forces to organise the Parade.

In view of the economic situation and to encourage maximum participation there is no entry fee and no financial contributions are being sought from the business community.

It is  hoped that imagination, colour and a huge participation will make us all feel positive and that the Parade will be the best seen in Cobh for many years! The theme of this year’s Parade is therefore “Positivity” and aims to encourage everyone to face the future with optimism.

All businesses, sporting, community and cultural groups are being encouraged to enter this year’s Parade and to help to build on the success of last year.

Despite the economic uncertainty Ireland still has a lot to be proud of and this is everyone’s chance to show how proud they are to be Irish.

The organisers hope to raise sufficient funds through a bag-packing fundraiser on Thursday, Friday and Saturday 10th – 12th March in Garvey’s Supervalu. Support would be greatly appreciated and it will help to ensure a Parade that everyone in Cobh and The Great Island can be proud of.  If anyone you can help with the bag packing please contact Ursula Duffy on 085 1668271.
