For many years, the Irish community flag has been raised outside Place Ville Marie a month prior to the annual St. Patrick’s Parade. Members of the Irish community, dignitaries, and guests have paraded in the Place Ville Marie shopping mall to signify that the Irish Season has arrived and that the annual parade is around the corner. This would not be possible without the partnerships developed between Place Ville Marie and the United Irish Societies. Place Ville Marie allows the Irish community flag to fly in place of its own, alongside the Canadian, Quebec, and the Place Ville Marie flags. For this, the United Irish Societies of Montreal is most grateful.
The date of the 2017 Flag Raising is TBD.
