Portlaoise St Patrick’s Day Committee is holding its annual general meeting on Monday, January 13 next at Egan’s Pub on Main Street at 8pm.
The organisers are hoping to build on last year’s success and are inviting as many people as possible to come along and contribute.
Ger Whelan is parade secretary.
“It is very important for the community, business and the town in general that Portlaoise hosts a parade . For this to happen and for the parade to be a success, new members are needed,” says Ger Whelan of the committee.
“We need people from all different groups - businesses, schools, community groups, as well as other members of the public to attend the AGM.
“Whatever your talent or whatever time you can spare in the run up to the parade, all is greatly appreciated. Your participation in the parade is very important and your support will guarantee a 2014 parade for Portlaoise. We need you there,” says Mr Whelan.
