Sligo's St Patrick's Day Festival theme for 2018 revealed
Last year's St Patrick's Day
Parade in Sligo had its highest number of entries
yet. It saw entries from schools, local businesses, community organisations and
sports clubs, all representing Sligo as the European
Capital for Volunteering for 2017.
As last year's parade was such a success it was
important to decide on a theme for this year that reflects the greater world
Sligo St Patrick's Day Parade Committee
are proud to announce the theme for 2018: Celebrating The Year of the Woman. In
line with the 100 year anniversary of women being granted with the right to
vote and stand for election (with Countess Markievicz being the first woman
elected to the House of Commons), the theme for this year celebrates the women of Sligo and the world.
Those who wish to march or
organise a float in the parade are invited to register through the Sligo St
Patrick's Day Website: sligostpatricksday.com.
Further information on volunteering opportunities, parade routes and more will
also be available through the website.
Alternatively, application forms will be made available for
collection from the Sligo Business Improvement District office on Abbey Street.
