THE route for this year’s St Patrick’s Day parade will be slightly different this year.
Owing to the road works on Denny Street and The Mall, the route at the end of the Tralee St Patrick’s Day Parade has to change.
The parade will start, as always, at John Joe Sheehy Road at 12pm on Friday and will travel down Boherbee and Castle Street before turning up Ashe Street.
The viewing stand will be located at the junction of Castle Street and Ashe Street. Road closures will be in place as follows:
11.00am – 12.30pm
• John Joe Sheehy Road (from the junction with Edward Street to the roundabout at Austin Stack’s Park)
11.30am – 2.00pm
• Boherbee, Upper & Lower Castle Street, Denny Street, Bothar an Phiarsaigh & Ivy Terrace (from the roundabout at Austin Stack’s Park to the junction with Prince’s Quay)
• Upper Bridge Street & the Mall (from the junction with Lower Bridge Street to the junction with Denny Street)
The organisers are asking members of the public to cooperate with volunteers and Gardaí on the day to ensure an enjoyable and safe parade for all.
