Fermoy St. Payricks Day

Fermoy Parade Grand Marshals

The first Fermoy St. Patricks Day Parade was held in 1983.

There were no grand marshlals until the 1990 parade when Michael Fennessy became our first grand marshal. Michael worked in New York and was chosen as he provided great assistance to people from the Fermoy Area who emmigrated to America.
