LIVE: Watch the St Patrick's Day parades in Dublin and Cork

Can’t make it in person? Never fear.


CAN’T MAKE IT in person? Never fear.

If you want to enjoy the marching bands, floats and colours from the comfort of your own gaff, here’s how to do it:

Dublin: The biggest parade in the country can be watched live on the RTE player here or on Aertv. Up to half a million people are lining the streets of the capital to take in one of the largest parades in the world, with participants coming from around the world.

Cork: The second-biggest parade in the country can be watched on the Cork St Patrick’s Festival website here.

New York: Somewhat dogged in controversy this year, the NYC parade begins at 4pm GMT and can be watched live here. The parade will begin at 44th Street in Midtown and will make its way up Fifth Avenue to 79th Street.

Any parades in your area being livestreamed? Let us know and we’ll add them to the list.
