Celebrate the return of St. Patrick's Festival, with RT

Following two years of virtual celebrations, RT will mark the return of St. Patrick's Festival with a variety of special programmes and themed content across television, radio and online, including extensive coverage of the first St. Patrick's Day parades since 2019.

>>>ST. PATRICK'S DAY HIGHLIGHTS

Join The National Parade

This year's national St. Patrick's Day Parade in Dublin will be broadcast live on RT One and RT Player and streamed on RTE.ie, as millions of viewers in Ireland and across the world join Bl thnaid N Chofaigh, Des Cahill, Emer O'Neill and M che l Scann il for an exciting spectacle live from the streets of Dublin from 12:15pm.

In addition to the extended parade programme on RT One and RT Player, the national St. Patrick's Day parade will be streamed on RT .ie and will also be available on the RT News Channel and RT News App. A special St. Patrick's Day tracker will also feature on the rte.ie homepage.

RT will also bring coverage of St. Patrick's Day parades from around the country across its services including a special Six One News programme.

Late Late Show Special

The Late Late Show will be at the heart of festivities for its live broadcast this St Patrick's Day. Host Ryan Tubridy will fly the Irish flag as he brings people together both at home and abroad for a very special evening to celebrate the very best in Irish comedy, acting, traditional music and sport.

Tune In

On RT Radio 1, Marty Morrissey and Sin ad N Uallach in will present a special bilingual programme bringing listeners two hours of chat, music and entertainment from 9.00-11.00am. From 2.00-3.00pm, Fiachna 'Braon in will bring you The RT Concert Orchestra Presents: New Irish Recordings, which will showcase both new writing and new orchestral arrangements from three artists making music today that uniquely explores the Irishness of each. The RT Concert Orchestra brings us new recordings of music from The Lost Brothers' acclaimed 2020 album After the Fire, After the Rain; brand new music inspired by the women of revolution of 100 years ago by songwriter Karan Casey; and a new interpretation of traditional pieces by musician and composer Saileog N Cheannabh in, with Ailbhe Nic Dhonncha and P draic Keane. Fiachna will be joined on air by the artists for some background and context to the music chosen for interpretation by the Concert Orchestra. Ray Cuddihy is back from 3.00-4.00pm with another edition of Mise Freshin, his genre-busting programme exploring contemporary and traditional music, recorded during a live gig in Dublin's Pepper Cannister Church.

On RT 2FM, Jennifer Zamparelli will host Jenn's Patrick's Day Party with The Two Johnnies in a special celebration from 12.00-1.00pm.

RT lyric fm presents Paul Herriott live from the National Concert Hall as David Brophy conducts the National Symphony Orchestra with two much loved works by Shaun Davey, The Brendan Voyage and Granuaile, featuring Rita Connolly. On Saturday 12th March at 1pm, RT lyric fm listeners are invited to roll out the green carpet as Aed n Gormley takes her annual look at Irish-made and Irish-themed films with music from classic favourites, My Left Foot, The Commitments, Brooklyn, Dancing at Lughnasa, Barry Lyndon and Michael Collins.

On Sunday 13th March, Sunday Matinee presents a new recording of Peadar agus an Mac T re (Peter and The Wolf) with the RT Concert Orchestra, narrated by Aed n Gormley

The Full Score will be celebrating Irish performers and composers throughout the week. A particular highlight will be a concert of Irish Language Songs performed by Gavan Ring and Fiachra Garvey at Wigmore Hall in London. This concert will also be streamed on RT .ie/culture. Evelyn Grant's Weekend Drive on Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th March will feature a host of Irish performers, composers and artists on the show this St Patrick's weekend plus a selection of recordings from the RT lyric fm label.

On RT Raidi na Gaeltachta S amus Scanl in will present a St. Patrick's Day programme about the history and folklore surrounding our patron saint at 9.15 am, and at 11.00am we'll hear a dramatic interpretation of the short story L Fh ile P draig by Seaosamh Mac Grianna by the Aisteoir Ghaoth Dobhair drama group. After midday, An Saol Dheas will be broadcasting live from the parade in B al tha an Ghaorthaidh in the Cork Gaeltacht. The area is well-known for its great community spirit and its St Patrick's Day celebrations always reflect that enthusiasm. They're back now after two years and excitement levels will be high. That evening, Liam Maonla will be joined in studio by R n n Snodaigh and Myles O'Reilly for some not quite traditional music, and some interesting conversations about the power of music, in the Cuan an Cheoil series.

On RT Player and RT .ie

In addition to streaming the St. Patrick's Day Parade, RT Player will feature great Irish drama and Irish legends as part of its curated content. Irishness has many strands and is influenced by fresh views, outlooks and cultures and over 3 programmes, Our Land - an RT Player Exclusive takes a deep dive into what it means to identify as Irish' today and how immigration shapes our understanding of identity and home. Meanwhile, rte.ie/culture Will be celebrating Irish arts and culture all weekend and presenting highlights from Dublin's St. Patrick's Day Festival.
