Festival organisers say ‘stay open’ as Ben Dolan is named Marshal

The organising committee of this year’s St Patrick’s Day parade in Mullingar – the first since 2017 – has asked the town’s businesses to remain open on the day.

“While St Patrick’s Day is a bank holiday, we encourage all businesses to open as we look forward to this great event inviting thousands to our town. We ask that you have St Patrick’s displays in your windows to help us celebrate the event,” the committee said in a statement. “You might have flags in your window, some St Patrick’s decoration, a green display, sna­kes, green lighting (easily done with some green Perspex over existing lighting) or even allow your staff to wear green.”
