Letterkenny Rugby Club had the great pleasure of participating in the St Patricks Day parade, entering a Novelty Float and a Ladies Senior Team as well as Teams at all underage levels from Under 6s to Under 11s.

The parade was very well organised and marshalled by Letterkenny Chamber of Commerce and we were very happy to win the award for Best Sports entry and Best Novelty entry and also the Overall Prize. We got two plaques to keep and an inscription on the overall Winners Plaque which we get to keep for one year.

We won because of the energy shown by the Ladies and the Kids and because we had a very novel Float see www.letterkennyrfc.com/news2/item/st-patricks-day-parade-success.html to promote two Charity Fundraising events, namely White Collar Boxing on May 19th www.facebook.com/pages/Letterkenny-White-Collar-Boxing-Event/106411936059809 in conjunction with the hospice and the new Coastal Cancer Challenge on July 21st http://www.coastalcancerchallenge.com/

The Float had two boxers in a Boxing Ring, one dressed in English Kit and one in Irish kit. The Englishman was very tall an dwell built and the Irish guy was not. In real life the Englishman is a local Bank Manager Derek Plumb and the Irishman a local Chef Martin Anderson. The Englishman was knocked down 32 times. There was a Referee and a Corner man and a Scorecard lady (namely Boyd Robinson). The energy in the ring and around the float was maintained for two hours, after which we all went to the Radisson Hotel to watch England beat Ireland in Twickenham in the Six Nations clash.

The Parade brought many members of the club together from many teams in to one single team which entered a great Community Event and together walked away with the prize. “We all enjoyed the day, the camaraderie and the fact that we were surrounded by so many other colourful entries who all put so much effort in to making this Town event such a success. Well done to the Chamber of Commerce for making it happen and to all the entrants for making it a success.”
