Limerick International Band Championship

Over 1000 musicians are expected to take part in Ireland’s only international band competition which will feature a world class judging panel and attract thousands of spectators on to the streets of the city as part of the 2021 Limerick St. Patrick’s Festival, in association with Fáilte Ireland.

The Limerick International Band Championship is held each year on the Sunday closest to St. Patrick’s Day allowing your band to enjoy the festivities and participate in both the Dublin St. Patrick’s Day Parade and the Limerick International Band Championship.

If your band is considering participating in Dublin's St. Patrick’s Day Parade why not also include a trip to Limerick, on Ireland’s beautiful west coast?

Both Limerick and Dublin can work together to ensure that you and your group have a memorable experience and visit.
