St. Patricks Day Parade

posted 13 Mar 2012, 02:02 by Unknown user
Kinvara GAA will this year parade in the hughly successful St. Patricks Day parade in Kinvara this coming Saturday 17th March.
What age group:
Since a lot of our juvenile members are also members of the local soccer club we have discussed with them and agreed the following:

U6's parade for GAA
U8's parade for Soccer
U10's parade for GAA
U11's parade for Soccer

Note: All older kids to parade with the GAA. 

Note: if there is a boy who is not a member of the soccer, then he to parade with us.

What to wear:
Tog out! Wear runners (not boots on the road), socks and togs. Also wear a GAA jersey if possible - we suggest to bring plenty of colour so you can wear the county jersey of your parents or whatever.
You can even wear the Kinvara Training top that was given out with membership last year.

Note: if cold, make sure to wear layers underneath. No problem even wearing a tracksuit bottom and then the togs over it.

What to bring:
Its up to yourself. Bring your helmet and hurl if you wish. Unfortunately due to large numbers, we will not be giving out any gear or balls or sliotars, so that is up to yourself to bring. But be careful!
I suppose we would recommend bringing your hurl as it would give us our own identity as the GAA.

Where / when:
Parade starts at 1.30pm, so all participants are told to meet at field at top of Moy Road (hurling pitch road) at 12.45pm. Head straight for the Kinvara GAA flags!

We would appreciate help from parents in the parade. This would take form of perhaps marching along the outside, to keep an eye on kids and balls!

Any queries or suggestions, then please contact Garret 087-9513442.
Thats it. See you all there!
