WATCH: Shamrock Festival off to a cracking start

The Navan Shamrock Festival got off to a cracking start last night.

A spectacular fireworks display on a clear, calm evening saw hundreds of people converge on Blackwater Park to see the 10 minute display.

The fireworks signalled the start of the St Patrick's Day and weekend festivities which sees the Navan Parade commence at 2pm. See all times and details here.

You can watch action from last night's display here.


Getting out out Blackwater Park after the display took a bit of patience with Gardai and Civil Defence having to come on the scene to martial traffic from the carpark back in towards town.
