Excitement is mounting in Carrig on Bannow as the village prepares to hold its ever-popular St Patrick's Day parade for the seventh year running.

The town will be a flurry of colour, festivity and of course, good-humoured rivalry, as local community groups, businesses and individuals come together for the special occasion. As always, the parade will be brimming with a wide array of interesting floats, many of which will be based on local happenings or current political themes.

If you miss the parade on its first run around the village, or perhaps want to see it again, you can catch it on its return journey back to the school field.

Following the parade, the judges will decide on the deserving winners in categories such as 'best band, 'most comical' and 'audience involvement'. The winner of the highly-coveted 'Fred Curtis Award' will also be revealed on the day.

For more details, or if you want to enter a float, contact Shay (0879909692), Marie (0879709901) or Catherine (0872917849).
