All fired up for St Patrick’s Festival

by Edited by Jimmy Rhatigan

THINGS ARE all fired up for Kilkenny’s St Patrick’s Festival.

Two what are being called fire-raising additions have been added to the festival programme that will boost the purse of the St Vincent De Paul Society locally. 

A fireworks display will blaze over Kilkenny Castle on March 18 and Firestorm Fire and Dance Show by Rogu will perform outside Butler Gallery on St Patrick’s Night. 

Tickets for both are on sale via stpatricksfestivalkilkenny.com  

The events are part of a packed six-day St Patrick’s Festival.

Rogu will bring an explosion of fire, light, skill and the ridiculous to Butler Gallery. 

As the day closes after a fun-filled extravaganza this show will light up the night and bring audiences on a journey where they won’t know what comes next. 


From epic showdowns to fantasy, intense fire choreography will lead to the dream-like worlds of illusion and imagination. All proceeds from this event will benefit the St. Vincent De Paul.

Fireworks will light up the night sky over Kilkenny Castle on March 18. 

The event which began as part of Yulefest Kilkenny has previously been cancelled twice, firstly due to bad weather and then as Covid rates rocketed.

Organised in association with Kilkenny County Council, the OPW and the St Patrick’s Festival Kilkenny, tickets for this re-launched event are on sale at stpatricksfestivalkilkenny.com

Ticket holders from the first event have been advised that their tickets remain valid.  

St. Patrick’s Festival has events for all the family from the March 15 to 20.

Spectaculars include a St Patrick’s Day Parade, Festival Food Market, Big Wheel, Bandstand razamatazz, Street Performers and its sister festival Tradfest Kilkenny.
