The Parade takes place on 17th March at 1pm on the route below.

The Cork St. Patricks’ Day Parade 2023 has chosen A Century of Stories as it’s theme 

This reflects the last phase of the ‘Decade of Centenaries’ programme, a most significant time in which we have grown as a nation. The Cork City St. Patricks’ Day Parade is an annual pageant presented by the wonderful and varied communities who make up our ‘beautiful city, so charming and pretty’. A vibrant and colourful display, Cork’s parade features members of communities from all walks of life across the city – sporting groups to dance schools, new communities, our long-established brass bands, and special guests from around the world.
