The Republic of Ireland Women’s National Football Team has been chosen as the Grand Marshal for the 2023 National St Patrick’s Day Parade.

Team Manager Vera Pauw, experienced defender Diane Caldwell and former international Paula Gorham will represent the team and lead out the national parade on Friday March 17th.

Republic of Ireland National Women’s Team Manager, Vera Pauw: “What a year 2023 will be for women’s football in Ireland but also for the country as a whole because we celebrate our success together.

“The achievement of this team is incredible but we know that we wouldn’t have made it without the fantastic support of the Irish people, from all around the world.

“So it is a huge honour for the team to be named as Grand Marshal for the St. Patrick’s Day Parade before we fly to Australia this summer to do the nation proud at the FIFA Women’s World Cup.

“I feel extremely lucky to represent the squad and will be especially looking forward to seeing all the smiling faces on March 17th.”

This year’s National St. Patrick’s Day Parade returns to the streets of Dublin city from 12 noon on Friday March 17th, winding its way from Parnell Square to Kevin St Junction.
