Another St Patrick’s Day win for Signal!

Delighted to announce that Signal Arts Centre has won the award in the 2019 St Patrick’s Day Parade category ‘Best Arts & Entertainment’. It took lots of planning and hard work by the Signal staff and Board members and was worth every minute of effort.

We had loads of fun marching on the day as you can tell from the photos. Our theme this year was chess.

All this couldn’t be possible without the hard work of Kaisa Ypya, Anna O’Rourke, Ruth Feeley and Greg Murray for the costume design.

People from “Trans Greystones” and from the local Bray community marched with us as well, many of them students in various classes run by Signal, to ensure we had all the pieces on the chess board. Loads of happy little black and white pawns!

Also thanks to Greg Mulvaney for the use of his truck to make the float and for driving it too! It gave us a place to display all the artwork made by the various classes specifically for the parade.

It was a long day but at the end of it we were all in high spirits and sure that we had won our category, which it turned out we did! Congratulations to everyone involved!
