St Patrick’s Day Parade 2019
Ballymac GAA have taken part in the St Patrick’s Day Parade in Tralee for many years. It has now become an Annual event for children, mentors and parents.
Last Sunday we had a good turnout for the Parade on a cold morning but a very dry morning. The kids were having a blast singing from start to finish and getting the crowds approval with all the clapping. The interaction with the crowd and the “well done’s” coming from the crowd meant a lot to the children.
Thanks to all the kids and parents who marched with Ballymac and showed pride in our club and wearing our club colours of Blue and Gold. Ballymac Abú!
