Letterkenny Blaze Basketball will be participating in this year’s St Patrick’s Day Parade.
This will involve marching in supervised lines to the sound of especially chosen music.
All Blaze members are welcome to take part. We will be having a practice session in the convent gym on Saturday 15th March from 4 – 5 pm
Younger children (10 and under) will need to be supervised by a parent during the parade.
Why not come along and show what a great club we have.
