The Arklow parade begins at 2pm this year. The parade will start at the Navvy Hill, and then through to Abbey Street, Lower Main Street before finishing at Main Street.
Road closures from 1pm to 3pm.
The parade in Rathdrum has been running for many years and is always a colourful event. This year the parade will depart from Avon Motors at 12 noon on St Patrick’s Day and make its way to Market Square, where the viewing stand will be located, before heading down Main Street.
The village of Aughrim too has a strong tradition of St. Patrick's Day parades, always featuring a large array of vintage machinery and vehicles. Another highlight has been the musical entertainment from the Aughrim Pipe Band.
Aughrim's parade this year will commence at 11.15am.
