Since 1989 in Kiltimagh, Co. Mayo, St. Patricks day has evolved to become a week long celebration of Irish tradition and culture.
The Quaker City String Band from Philadelphia has visited Kiltimagh for the Saint Patrick's Day Parade on many occasions, adding to the international flavour and colour of the week.
Visiting bands from Europe also join with various Irish Bands to create a fun filled festival for everyone.
The festival programme also includes Concerts, Fishing Competitons, Table Quizes, Exhibitions, Drama and a wide range of evening entertainment.
The highlight of the festival is our parade, and with over 40 floats and many bands, our St. Patrick's Day Parade is one of the biggest and best in the West.
