Clare people at home and abroad are being invited to come together virtually to celebrate St Patrick’s Day 2021 online.

This year, Clare County Council is organising and presenting an online St Patrick’s Day event with the theme of ‘Connecting Clare’, and everyone can get involved. The Council is inviting people to celebrate St Patrick’s Day together, by actively participating in the online event. 

A Council spokesperson told The Clare Echo that this is a unique opportunity for Clare people from all over the globe to showcase their talents and also connect with their home county.

To participate, you can record an individual or group performance and submit it to Clare County Council online (please see details below). Whether it’s music, song, poetry, dance, a backyard parade – the choice is yours. The council is asking people to embrace the theme, ‘Connecting Clare’, in performances.  

A judging panel selected by Ennis Municipal District will review all entries. On St Patrick’s Day the Council will be releasing short videos every hour between 11am and 5pm. There will be prizes for winners in the following categories:

  • Best interpretation of theme (€300)
  • Best children’s performance (€300)
  • Most imaginative entry (€300).

Winners in these categories will be announced during the video released at 5pm. All other performances that secure a place on the final videos released on St Patrick’s Day will be entered into a draw for two €100 Clare Gift Cards.
