Are you a Patrick living in Co Clare? You could head the parade in Ennis

If your name is Patrick and you live in Co Clare, you may be in the running for a big role this St Patrick's day.

The Council there wants to find the county's oldest resident named Patrick to be the Grand Marshall for its parade in Ennis on March 17.

Organisers say it's all about giving recognition to older people in Co Clare, who have made important contributions to the community throughout their lives.

If you or someone you know might be a contender for the honour, you can contact organisers by 4pm on March 2.

You can tweet them on @ennisparades or email them at
