St. Patrick's Day Parade
Being Irish (On St. Patrick's Day) is very much a part of who we are. We take it everywhere with us and that was very evident this year more than any other year as the rest of the world celebrated our National Day with us. The people and the businesses of Portumna pulled out all the stops on Saturday.

The parade attracted large crowds to Portumna. There was over 35 floats in all. Despite the doom and gloom that is covering Ireland like a blanket at the moment, Portumna shun brightly for one day at least.

The parade is the official start of the tourist season in Portumna. The sun shone, the floats varied from Mrs Browns Boys to the Turf Cutting controversy in East Galway to Vintage Cars and the upcoming Shorelines festival later in the year.

The overall winners were: 1st Portumna Active Retirement Group, 2nd Clonmoylan Turf Cutters & 3rd Lorrha Tavern with Mrs Browns Boys.

The winner of the best window display was The Cornloft Restaurant, with Bethlehem Take away and Restaurant getting the runner up prize.

The organizing committee wish to thank everyone who helped in any way towards the running of the parade and also the sponsors - Ladies Day and Portumna Farm & Dairy Services. The Judging Team, Ann Donoghue for her posters. S.O.S. (Sign Out Sessions) pre parade street entertainment and sound equipment for the parade.
