We have a great weekend ahead – Six Nations Rugby on SATURDAY and St. Patricks Day Parade on SUNDAY.
SUNDAY 18th March
Parade: If you have ever wanted to feel like a rockstar adored by screaming, waving fans, then now is your chance. All you have to do is show up and walk in the 188th Montreal Paddys Day parade, (the oldest consecutively run parade in N. America!!!!).
We will recruit new players from the crowd by passing out flyers etc.
There will be MIRFC jerseys for people to wear in the parade and I will have VIP passes for Hurley’s (you’ll need them) for everyone that marches.
Bring your friends and family members too – Its a great day for the kids!!!
Rookies – Parade attendance is mandatory!!!!!Think of it like game day…so bring your A game. We might even go easy on you at ROOKIE NIGHT (details coming soon) if your attendance and participation is exceptional on Sunday. Remember the GREENER theBETTERon this day so WEAR LOTS OF GREEN!! There will be a much coveted MIRFC prize for the most impressively dressed member of the Irish!! SUNDAY 18th March

Aim: Have fun, promote Montreal Irish Rugby, have fun.
Weather: Sunday is expected to be GOOOOD, expect a low of +5 and a high of +12 celsius, perfect for a stroll down St-Catherines St.
VIP passes allow you to skip the queue (line) at Hurleys (normally 5 ppl deep and 1 block long) and proceed directly to the bar! So if you want one you gotta be marching!!
