    Limerick St. Patrick's Festival

Limerick St. Patrick’s Festival 2024 was enjoyed by tens of thousands of people in the city over the Bank Holiday weekend. With two major parades, exciting street shows, the panoramic wheel and lots of lively live music and dance, there truly was a different kind of energy in the air.

Favourable weather helped draw over 50,000 people into the city to cheer on more than 70 groups and communities taking part in the St. Patrick’s Day Parade on Sunday. Highlights included a giant snake that charmed onlookers, while Mirror dancers added some sparkle and an army of St. Patricks sang and danced their way along the parade route. 

Thousands more people enjoyed energetic performances at the 52nd International Band Championship Parade and live music jamboree in the park on Bank Holiday Monday. The 110 strong Lakeville South Marching Cougars from Minnesota took the top prize. See the full list of winners on
