Piping the cars and tractors away on their rally last year!
In 1999, Dripsey wrote its own chapter in the history books when they held the Shortest St Patrick's Day Parade in the World. The next page contains a vivid description of the parade from a later year, and is the nearest to a full description as you'll find.

The parades continued for seven years before one of the pubs closed down and the celebration of St Patrick's Day was moved to Griffins Garden Centre under the auspices of the Annual St Patrick's Day Vintage Tractor and Car Rally, which has continued every year until 2019. Unfortunately, the CoronaVirus pandemic that occurred in 2020 cancelled that year's Rally.
