Fun, Fireworks And Parties To Mark St Patrick's Day 2010

Green Mines with silver strobes

FROM fireworks to film and the "most amazing parade in the world", there's something for everyone this St Patrick's Day.

The festival is not just a one- day affair -- organisers are offering a six-day helping of street theatre, music, visual arts and a ceili to celebrate all things, Irish.

The fun starts on March 12 and organisers promise the festivities won't be limited to Dublin.

And most importantly -- it is set to deliver a massive €58.3m cash boost to the Irish economy with one million people expected on the streets to watch festival events.

One of this year's highlights is the National Lottery Skyfest in Limerick City, with 50,000 people expected to attend a fireworks display at King John's Castle overlooking the Shannon.

Families can look forward to a 'Big Day Out' in Merrion Square on March 14. And a monster ceili will get pulses racing at St Stephen's Green at 4pm on St Patrick's Eve.

Colourful characters including a "dancing puppet", "a liquorice sweet" and a "candy floss girl" gave a flavour of the March 17 parade at the festival launch yesterday.

This year's parade will feature the work of pageant companies from all over Ireland and marching bands from the US, Bulgaria and France. Click here for the full article.
