St. Patrick’s Day Festival Kilkenny Reveals ‘Jonathan Swift’ Theme for 2017 Parade
The St. Patrick’s Day Festival Kilkenny revealed that the 2017 St. Patrick’s Day celebrations will be centred around the theme of ‘Jonathan Swift’. Famous the world over as the author of ‘Gulliver’s Travels’, Jonathan Swift was educated at Kilkenny College, in the centre of Kilkenny City, which now headquarters Kilkenny County Council. The theme for the 2017 St. Patrick’s Day Festival was chosen to pay tribute to and to celebrate Swift’s heritage in Kilkenny.
St. Patrick’s Day Festival Kilkenny intends to make this year’s parade the most memorable to date and has recruited the support of Wexford based company Bui Bolg Productions. The visual artists and design company will make a range of state of the art and incredible props, including a giant Gulliver, which will put the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Kilkenny on the map.
