Blue & Amber 21 | Parade

This is a wonderful opportunity to pay tribute to the members of the care, profession and emergency services including Doctors, Nurses, Ambulance Staff, Gardaí and members of the Defence Forces, all of whom were represented in significant numbers at the parade . Their resilience and heroic efforts over the past year, and the integral work they have done on behalf of all of us should be acknowledged, and should never be forgotten. This occasion provides a platform for the people of Kinsale to make this tribute and also acknowledges the resilience of our community to commence the process of rebuilding our town and environment while at the same time supporting such a worthy cause in Pieta House, which carries out vital work in the areas of suicide prevention and supporting mental health.

We also want to acknowledge the support of the Kinsale and District Lions Club and Kinsale Youth Support Services with this event and all our volunteers. Quite frankly, the numbers of vehicles on the convoy speak for themselves and a huge thanks to everyone who was part of this community collaboration from all sectors of the community including farming, Gardai, HSE and business . It was amazing to see such collaboration, sense of community and people all helping and supporting in so many ways. Hoping that anyone experiencing darkness can find the light. We will shortly publish a thank you list and sponsors and there are so many to thank who helped out and collaborated we want it to be all inclusive. We are touched that this convoy resonated with so many people in so many ways and we are getting good wishes messages from all over the world. Thanks to all media channels for covering this so well with spectacular drone footage capturing the event.

Supporting the local community. We are grateful for your support and generosity. We commend your resilience and better days are ahead.
