Plans are already in hand to celebrate St.Patrick’s day, which this year falls on Saturday 17th March.
Parade chairman John O’Byrne told this paper that the next meeting of the Parade committee will be in Mikey Ryan’s on Thursday 19th of January, when a number of important items will be discussed, including a fund raising Quiz night, Church Gate Collections and plans for the day itself.
One item for discussion is a proposal to hold a family fancy dress competition with cash prizes for folks from the crowd.
“We are always impressed by the effort that people put into celebrating the day, and that includes for the spectators” explained John O’Byrne “ so we are going to discuss awarding a few prizes for the best fancy dress on the day for the folks in the crowd.”
All are welcome to attend the meeting, which will begin at 7:30 on Thursday 19th January in Mikey Ryans.
