The Spraoi team took time out of their busy schedule to give Mayor of Waterford City and County Cllr. Adam Wyse a sneak peak of their entry for the St. Patrick’s Day parade. The theme of the 2017 parade is “Do It the Green Way” and will celebrate the imminent opening of the Waterford Greenway (www.visitwaterfordgreenway.com), a 46km off-road walking and cycling trail following the route of the disused railway line from Dungarvan to Waterford. Spraoi’s entry will celebrate the Greenway’s wildlife including owls and goats!
The manager of the 2016 Hurling All-Ireland Under-21 Champions, Sean Power will lead the 2017 parade along with some of the stars of his winning team. Adam Wyse, Mayor of
Waterford City and County said “It’s a great privilege to be able to celebrate the success of Sean Power and his team on such a large scale, this year’s parade is all about going green to
celebrate the opening of Waterford Greenway project, we want people to get out and enjoy this amazing amenity we now have joining our City and county, and what better way to
celebrate that then to commemorate a team who have given the entire county such joy and pride”.
The parade takes place on Friday 17th March, leaving the Glen at 1pm, continuing down to the Quay, onto The Mall, and will finish on Parnell Street.
