It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the 2022 Brisbane Irish Festival.
As Lord Mayor, I am very supportive of events that bring our community together and embrace Council’s vision of a vibrant, creative city. The Brisbane Irish Festival is certainly one of these events and a highlight of Brisbane’s social calendar.
It was unfortunate that last year’s St Patrick’s Day street parade had to be cancelled due to Coronavirus (COVID-19), however, I commend the Brisbane Irish Festival for their hard work in organising another wonderful event and for their valuable contribution to our city.
I take this opportunity to welcome everyone in celebrating the festival this year. Please accept my best wishes for a truly festive Brisbane Irish Festival.
