St Patrick’s Weekend Celebrations

This year Tipperary Credit Union sponsored Tipperary Town’s St Patrick’s Day Parade and St Patrick’s Festival Food Market and Family Fun Day. With one of the wettest weekends we have had in a while (it was the really wet rain that fell, along with a wind that decided it would be of the blustery and cold kind) the spirits where still high. As this is our 50th year serving our community we decided to go all out for our St Patrick’s Day Parade.
