New group to organise St Patricks Day Parade in Listowel

A new group has been established to organise the Listowel St Patrick`s Day Parade. The group was set up after a meeting last night. Glor Na nGael has organised the parade since 1978 and wants to take more of a back seat but no other group came forward to take responsibility for the event. Cllr O Leary says they have spent the last 12 months looking for a new committee. He says he hopes the future is now secure.
