For more than twenty years, the annual Delvin Parade has entertained the crowds with larger than life characters, hilarious sketches, marching bands, displays of incredible skill and the best of local talent. 

Having been snowed off in 2018, the Parade will return refreshed and bolder than ever with a new committee at the helm and a host of floats already registered.

Guest of honour will be Anna May McHugh - Managing Director of the National Ploughing Association.

So wrap up warm, bring an umbrella and a camera and join us in Delvin on Monday 18th March!
