BEO Parade for Bliain na Gaeilge

14 April 2018

As well as our Challenge Competition, Ógras will be attending and taking part in the BEO Parade on the 14th of April and we hope that lots of Ógras members and leaders will come along! There will be a parade, entertainment, music, speeches, a family day and more!


Ógras will meet at 12.30 at Parnell Square for the parade at 1, and then stay in Merrion Square until 3 for the day's activities and speeches from special guests and Uachtarán na hÉireann, Mícheál D Ó hUiginn. Ógras will be sending out banner-making kits to the clubs, and everyone is welcome to make a banner for the parade - even if they will not be at the event! There will be buses coming from different areas throughout the country, so contact your local Development Officer to book a space.
