The Navan Shamrock Festival Committee wishes to congratulate and is deeply honoured to have Miriam McKenna of Flexibus as the Grand Marshal of this years parade.
"I am honoured to accept the nomination to be Grand Marshall of Navan St. Patrick’s Day Parade. I accept this tribute on behalf of the communities who have worked to set up and retain rural services, the supporters of the Rural Transport Programme and the passengers who continually and consistently use our services and benefit from them. I have invited some passengers to join me in leading the parade. I would like to thank Navan Town Council and The Shamrock Festival Committee, for this honour and to wish them all the best for their Festival which is packed with fun and entertaining events. The Festival is a great community experience created for families by volunteers. Come out and enjoy a great family experience with the Shamrock Festival."
