ST PARTRICKS DAY PARADES: Well done and heartiest congratulations to Kilbehenny Community group who won the 1st prize in the Mitchelstown St. Patrick’s day parade with a display entitled “The Silver Crest Hotel”. The display depicted the recent horse meat scandal. The group had a very large crew with a few poor misfortunate casualties getting sick after the horsie burgers! After receiving 1st place in Mitchelstown, this active group then headed off to Ballyporeen, where the same display took second prize in their parade. Well done to all involved. Anglesboro Community Council put on a huge display in the Ballylanders parade which was led by the Liam Lynch Memorial Pipe Band. The Anglesboro group was representative of all the groups in the area, with the theme being “The papal election” – The caption was “No smoke – no Pope”. The cast of the forthcoming play “A wake in the west” were also present as were the youth drama group, who held a banner and walked the route. All aspects of community activities were displayed in the parades. The winning group in Ballylanders was Glenroe with a huge display of “The Gathering”. They had a wonderful airplane with passengers preparing to come to the Glenroe Airport, where Arrival and Departure security staff were present to vet all. The end of the float depicted the celebrations that will be taking place at the Gatherings. All of the parades in the locality were successful and very well supported on a fine crisp day. Well done to all involved.
