Annual St. Patrick's Day Big Dance

Saturday, March 18th - 2017 at 9 pm

St. Patrick's BIG DANCE Headliner


Jason Boland & The Stragglers




"Music is having a moment. Listeners are crying out for something true––some meaty songs that’ll give us some comfort, even as they cut closer to the bone.

Everyone is finally ready for the gritty, thundering country Jason Boland and the Stragglers have sharpened over almost 20 years’ worth of selling out roomy venues and commanding stages across the nation. And new album Squelch provides the ideal vehicle.

“We’re just trying to make something that we're proud of,” lead songwriter and vocalist Boland says. “If any more people want to take notice of it, they’re welcome.”

Since coming together in Stillwater, Oklahoma, Boland and his tightknit crew have sold more than half a million albums independently and earned a devoted following that’s swelled far beyond the band’s red dirt roots. At a Stragglers show, oil patch roughnecks, hippies, college kids, and intelligentsia all sway side-by-side like a traveling reincarnation of Austin’s Armadillo World Headquarters in its cosmic cowboy, Willie Nelson heyday."

Donegal Contest



All competitors in the Donegal contest must meet at the announcer's stand at the parade at 10 a.m on March 18th, 2017. 


All true Donegal contestants must have started there beard ON or AFTER January 1, 2017.


Beards are judged on length, thickness, overall appearance and whether it is a true Donegal.


A Donegal beard is a whiskery fringe around the lower chin and jowls (see fig. 1). The razor is applied to the upper lip, upper chin and just above the collar line. All men caught on the streets of Shamrock without Donegals will be slammed in the Barefaced Jail to cool their heels while their beards grow to a thickness benefiting a true Irishman.
