Thanks to Aertv Irish around the world can feel a little more at home with Dublin’s Mardi Gras-style fiesta!

For the first time the St. Patrick’s Day parade in Dublin will be streamed live by Ireland’s online free TV platform Aertv, bringing a little piece of home to Irish people around the world this March 17.

A unique two-hour live production featuring parade festivities and familiar faces from Ireland's sporting and music world will be streamed worldwide for free from 8am to 10am EDT / 12pm – 2pm GMT.

Here’s the live stream:

The world renowned festival parade is the principle event on the annual St Patrick’s Day program. Meandering down the 3km route through the heart of Dublin City, the parade features artistry, creativity and musicianship in a sea of colorful celebration.

This year’s parade is all about making history. For the first time the St. Patrick’s Festival has created a three-year thematic journey of “Past, Present and Future.”

This year’s festival parade theme, ‘Let’s Make History,’ draws on the ‘Past’ and is the first step on this exciting, creative journey. In 2015 the Festival will explore the ‘Present’, and in 2016, the ‘Future’, when the Festival will pose the question, ‘who do we aspire to be in the next 100 years?’

Darragh Doyle (@darraghdoyle), the Community Manager for “Riverdance,” “Heartbeat of Home” and the @Ireland Twitter account, will be leading the live commentary for Aertv and encouraging viewers to join the conversation online. Having volunteered with the St Patrick's Festival in Dublin for 10 years, Darragh hopes to share his love of the Festival and his love of Dublin with those people around the world missing home, missing Ireland and especially the atmosphere on March 17.

Watch and interact with live coverage on Aertv from 8am to 10am EDT / 12pm – 2pm GMT .
