St. Patrick's Day Parade in Monaghan Town

The weather was far from kind for the celebration of St. Patrick's Day 2017 as it was cold and wet and uncomfortable for participants and spectators. The numbers attending may have been down slightly but there was an increase in the number of participants and a definite increase in the effort made to present creative floats and there was also an increase in the number of bands. Guests of Honour on the platform was Councillor John Skinner, Mayor of Douglas, and his wife, Mrs. Gillian Skinner.
