Once again, Lucan is gearing up for another St. Patrick's Day Parade, and welcomes Sorcha Furlong as our 2023 Parade Marshall. Sorcha will be known to many as Orla Molloy of RTE's Fair City.

The Lucan Parade is a free day out for families, and is run by a group of a non-profit, volunteer lead, organization, funded by a Community Grant from South Dublin County Council, donations from Lucan Traders, and various fundraising events held during the year.

Assembly & Starting Times
The Parade will assemble and commence at the large green located at Green Park Road / Westbrook Park / Hillcrest Close in Hillcrest (adjacent to Tesco) from 2pm, be in place by 2:30pm.

The parade takes two hours approximately to complete the route.
