Cllr Timmons – Founder and chair of the Parade committee says ‘’The committee took the experience and feedback from 2015, and building on the foundations we had laid, organised a massively successful parade through Clondalkin village in 2016 and again in 2017 , Over 700 people participated and over 8000 people attended.  The parade was a huge success and it is due to the hard work and struggle of the current organising committee. The Clondalkin Patricks day Parade will return for another year in Clondalkin Village , the parade is growing from Strength to Strength every year and this year we hope more people will take part in what has become a big part of the annual calendar In Clondalkin .’’
