TUESDAY’S parade is about to get a whole lot louder!

After a year of incredible marches, the Rockies fans will again take to the streets of Tralee for the St Patrick’s day parade.

Though the Rock faithful would prefer to be making their way down Jones’s Road before the All-Ireland club final in Croke Park on the same day, getting a chance to do it at home is some consolation.

Austin Stacks fans represented the Tralee side impeccably and were asked by organisers to participate in the parade and show their colour and great voice once again.

‘Super Rockies’ are asked to congregate at Connolly Park on St Patrick’s Day at 11am decked out in black and amber. It being a Rock march, that means that, fancy dress, drums and flags along with anything else you can think of are also encouraged.

After the parade, fans are invited back to the clubhouse for complimentary stew or bacon and cabbage. There will be a kiddie’s cinema in the hall with free popcorn and finger food also spot prizes galore.

The supporters gained plaudits from all over the country for the brilliant noise and colour brought to the game which will live long in the memory.
