Limerick’s St Patrick’s Festival promises a different kind of energy

This year's Limerick St Patrick's Festival promises "a different kind of energy".

THE THEME of this year’s Limerick City St Patrick’s Festival has been revealed by Limerick City and County Council (LCCC).

‘Limerick: A Different Kind of Energy’ will be the mantra the local authority hopes to carry throughout the 2024 festival, highlighting the Treaty’s continual energy evolution.

Mayor of the City and County of Limerick Gerald Mitchell said: “From Viking roots to the cosmopolitan present, Limerick’s heritage and tradition pulsate from every corner. For this year’s Limerick St Patrick’s Festival, we are inviting the world to witness a vibrant blend of history and modernism, creating ‘a different find of energy’ that defines our city and county.”

“Through the +CityxChange programme, Limerick is at the forefront of European cities working towards sustainable, innovative energy solutions. This places us on the global map as leaders in shaping a greener future and we are excited to share our dynamic spirit for generations to come.”

Starting with the St Patrick’s Day Parade on March 17, and with the 52nd Limerick International Band Championship, there will be colour and events all around the city as part of the annual festival.

Both parades will follow the same route as in 2023, starting on O’Connell Street before moving on to Henry Street and ending at Arthur’s Quay Park.
