The St. Patrick’s Day #BrayParade took place this afternoon (March 17th 2017 at 3pm). Thousands of people lined the route which started at the Town Hall, moving down the Main Street and on to the Seafront. Spirits were high as the town celebrated our nation day in style.

We are delighted with the amount of local community groups participating this year.
