Thanks guys, last one for a while...St Patrick’s Day Parade

Well done and thank you to all who helped with the St. Patrick's Day Parade... Thankfully the snow stayed away but it was cold... Another great success with about 300 in attendance and to be topped off with Ireland's win well done lads. Many winners ... Maggie and Molly, Karl McCartin Dancing, Super Valu, Michelle Fanning Assorted Fitness, 1st Leitrim Scouts and The Forge... Thank you to all who made the effort with floats etc. A big thank you to all our sponsors: publicans, Tesco, SuperValu, Fresh Today and Cumiskeys... Thank you to Ceoltas Group, Sean OHeslin Ballad group and all those who helped with setting up and cleaning up, Stewart's, Gardai and a lovely group of teenagers and not for getting of course St.Patrick (Frank McCabe) ... That is it from myself and David... The parade needs new blood and ideas and also needs a few people to run it. So if you are interested in keeping it going please think about getting involved and give us a shout. Thank you all again for your support.
