Celebrating St. Patrick’s Day

Published on March 17, 2023

The day began when Bishop Fintan held the traditional blessing of the Shamrock for members of the 22nd Infantry Battalion Association before celebrating Mass with pupils and teachers from Rice College leading the Liturgy in music, dancing, and singing. The students took part also in the readings and prayers as Gaelige. The celebrations continued with the St Patrick’s Day Parade
Our thanks to the teachers and pupils who uplifted the congregation at the start of the St Patrick’s day celebrations in Ennis, and to Pat Hanrahan for giving us a flavour of the annual St Patrick’s Day parade.
