ST PATRICK (Mike Twomey) led the Bruff parade in a convertible Mercedes Benz however he may be fired next year as a huge snake crawled up the street in his wake!
Bruff Scouts utilized the effort the group is understood for by producing a huge lime green python.
“St Patrick is as popular as ever and it’s a good reason for a couple of pints!” smiled Mr Twomey.
The Scouts was among lots of clubs and organisations from Bruff and surrounding parishes to participate in the parade. The all dominating Bruff GAA and Camogie Clubs; An Bru AFC; Knockainey GAA, Ladies Gaelic Football and Camogie Clubs; Knockainey AFC; Holycross AFC; Bruff RFC; Dromin Athlacca Banogue GAA; Morning Star Ladybirds; Bruff Girl Guides; Ballybricken Scouts and more were all out in force.
A sun shower began simply as the parade began after 2.30pm however the good news is rapidly blew over.
The regional Ukrainian neighborhood participated and thanked Bruff for their generosity to them. One little boy using military tiredness and riding a mini-bike had an indication stating, “Hasta la Vista, Putin”.
Much bigger motorcycles thronged the Main Street as did a selection of vintage and modern-day farming equipment.
Large crowds came out to see the parade, consisting of siblings Robyn, aged 10, and Paige, 5, from Bruree, had their faces painted with the tricolour and joyful headpieces. Cousins Lottie Purcell, Zoe Murphy and Maisie Purcell were all dressed to impress in green gowns however it is safe to state their granny Deirdre Madigan took the program in her Irish curly wig!
The spirit of St Patrick’s Day lived and well in Bruff apart from the huge snake.
