THE rain stayed away as hundreds turned out a little early this year for the St Patrick’s Day parade in Tralee.

Sometime after 12 noon the hundreds of participants came down Castle Street  led by Grand Marshall, Dan Horan of Horan’s Health Food Stores.

He took his place  in the stands with local dignitaries to watch the bands, clubs, societies, businesses and community groups make their way down through to the Mall.

There was a tremendous show of the community spirit in the town as MCs Mike O’Donnell and Sean Lyons kept the crowd informed of who was coming next in the parade.

The parade was finished in plenty time for people to head home (or the pub) to watch the rugby. Scroll down for photos…
