The much anticipated Portlaoise St. Patricks Day Parade awards night will be held this Friday, April 27 in the Parish Centre commencing at 7pm.
Each group, club or business that participated in this years parade is invited to send along a couple of representatives to accept their award for taking part while the winners of the various categories and the overall best floats will receive special prizes.
There will be entertainment and refreshments served
Meanwhile, also this Friday, the Knights Showband comes to Downtown Portlaoise to perform in Coppers with all funds raised going towards the promotion of the town.
This promises to be a great night’s entertainment in a venue usually associated with nightclub music that will be turned into a night of real nostalgia as the famed Knights take to the stage and with a massive dance floor that will be filled to the brim all night.
Tickets are just €10 and are available from The Square Meal, Jerry Browne Jewellers, Marcus Breslin Pharmacy, Alan Flynn or just come along and pay on the door from 8pm.
