I have lived in Warrington all my life and have genuinely never heard of this Parade. I used to pride myself on my knowledge of the towns history and pageantry . Is this a recent inception?

Maybe it just slipped me by as CoE.

do they do an english one? The Irish?

I think you mean does Warrington host an english one. And the answer is yes.

St Georges Day Parade.

From memory it starts at the town hall and heads to the parish church, then back again.

What a BRILIANT town Warrington is. We have an annual walk of witness where all churches walk together, an Irish parade, a Peace Centre and a tolerant community.
We have had a heritage of this and long may it continue.
There are walking days in most of the surrounding villages as well.
Well done Warrington Council to support these religious and cultural events.

England's patron saint, a fourth century Christian martyr, is also patron saint of Georgia and the city of Moscow. and he was born in the late third century in Cappadocia, an area which is now in Turkey.

St Patrick was born at Kilpatrick, near Dumbarton, in Scotland, in the year 387, thus making him a Scot.

I thought exactly the same as flashcoffy, never heard of or seen this parade in all my years of living in Warrington.
