2015 Cobh St. Patrick’s Day Parade to reflect 100 years of Heritage

On Tuesday March 17th the Cobh St. Patrick’s Day Parade will start on the Low Road by Cobh Heritage Centre at 3.30 pm.

To assist in the smooth running of the Cobh St. Patrick's Day Parade we have listed the entries in the order in which they are to line up. ALL walkers are to line up on the Deep Water Quay including Cobh Pirates. ONLY vehicles and their drivers and passengers will be allowed on the Low Road – entry via the Whitepoint end. Late entries are welcome but must pay a late entry fee of €50 on the day. Late entries will be at the back of the parade.












See You in Cobh, Cobh Tourism and Cobh Tidy Towns will again join forces to organise the Cobh St. Patrick’s Day Parade in 2015. Entry forms may be downloaded by clicking 2015 Entry Form Parade.

All participants in the Cobh Parade are invited to embrace the theme “COBH: 100 years of Heritage”. Consider reflecting on Cobh, Great Island and Ireland 100 or more years ago. Think of sport and sporting groups, fashion, transport, the completion of St. Colman’s Cathedral, movies, entertainment, children’s games, the Lusitania, industry and work, farming and world history. Decorate Floats and vehicles and create imaginative entries for the occasion and join in the fun!

All walking entries will assemble on the Deep Water Quay which will have barriers along the water side. All vehicle entries will be lined up on the Low Road with access via the Whitepoint end ONLY. Mixed entries should have the vehicle(s) on the Low Road and the pedestrian element on the Deep Water Quay. The Parade will end at the Old Town Hall and vehicles must continue along Harbour Row to avoid congestion.

To encourage maximum participation there will once again be no entry fee for entries received up to and including the 10th March. THERE WILL BE A LATE ENTRY FEE for entries received after 10th March of €50. Timely return of entry forms will allow the organisers to plan the running order of the parade and to post the running order on visitcobh.com in advance of the parade which will assist everyone. All late entries will be at the back of the parade.

There will be prizes for the Best Non Commercial Entries and the perpetual trophy will be presented to the Best Overall Entry.
