FANORE may not have a main street on which to showcase it’s annual St Patrick’s Day parade, but nevertheless the North Clare community has a highway to top the lot.   The coast road through the village is now part of the Wild Atlantic Way and  locals and visitors to the area lined the road t in big numbers to enjoy Sunday’s proceedings.

It’s a place of outstanding beauty, where the Burren meets the majestic Atlantic Ocean, with the Aran Islands almost within touching distance.  What more appropriate place could you be than at Fanore, which presents an iconic image of County Clare.
