THERE’S a grand stretch in the evenings and we will be donning the shamrock for St Patrick’s Day in no time at all.

With that in mind, Clare County Council is inviting groups, businesses, societies and clubs from all over Clare to take part in the 2018 Ennis St. Patrick’s Day Parade.

The theme for this year’s Parade is ‘Ennis – Ireland’s Friendliest Place’, which gives everyone a chance to celebrate the town’s newly achieved status.

In welcoming the theme of this year’s parade, Mayor of Ennis Cllr. Paul Murphy, said, “Clare County Council, through Local Enterprise Office Clare, and Ennis Chamber are working together to promote the development of a vibrant and competitive retail sector in the town.

“These efforts have been recognised by Retail Excellence Ireland who recently named Ennis as ‘Ireland’s Friendliest Place’. It is important we acknowledge this achievement through the town’s largest annual public event which is all about celebrating community.”

In excess of 10,000 people lined the streets of the Clare County Capital during last year’s parade, which featured 50 groups representing the many aspects of life in Ennis and County Clare.

Application forms are available from ennisparades@clarecoco.ie, www.clarecoco.ie or from the Ennis Municipal District office on 065 6846542.  Alternatively, see Facebook (www.facebook.com/ennisparade) and Twitter (@ennisparade).
