This year’s parade Grand Marshal is Olympic gold medalist Katie Taylor. She carried Ireland’s flag in the opening ceremonies at London’s 2012 Olympic Games.
Olympic gold medallist Katie Taylor will be the parade’s Grand Marshal. Taylor was the flag bearer for Ireland during the Opening Ceremonies at the 2012 London Olympics and went on to win a gold medal.
