The Dundalk St. Patrick’s Day committee has confirmed that there will be no event in the town for March 17th this year. In a statement, the voluntary group said that funding issues along with a short run-in time left them with no options.
The committee said: ‘Despite our best efforts, with numerous contacts and meetings held, due to budget constraints, as well as uncertainty around Covid 19 at the end of last year, we are unable to host a St. Patrick’s Day event in Dundalk this year. However, we have lots of ideas and plans for next year, which we are already working on’.
‘We are going forward with plans that would mean a major event for people to enjoy in Dundalk next year. We look forward to building on the work we already have done.’
