Auckland St Patrick’s Festival Celebrations

St Patrick’s Day is March 17.. and we've got a few wee ways for you to PRACTICE for the Big Event !

This coming Friday we're PRACTICING all night on the FREE GUINNESS HOOLEY Bus...

From 6pm - it goes round and round ALL the OFFICIAL FESTIVAL PUBS ...ALL NIGHT ... The Clare Inn, Claddagh, The BOG and The Thirsty Dog to be sure . It’S a FREE bus - thanks to our good friends at "Guinness"

Then this Saturday is the LAST BIG PRACTICE for St Patrick’s Day ...and you won’t want to miss it!

The HUGH GREEN GROUP Parade on Queen Street herself starts MIDDAY Saturday with dancing and singing like there’s no tomorrows .. Even St Pat himself will be there!

Then from 1 till 3 , the magical musical Guinness Fleadh is on right by the Town Hall there ... ... it'll be a wonderful afternoon ...

Have a look at .... and with enough PRACTICE ... I tink we'll be nearly PERFECT!
