93 Year Old Jimmy Stenson Grand Marshal of St. Patrick’s Day Parade
Carrick Chamber hosted this year’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade and were delighted to have as this year’s Grand Marshal 93 year old Jimmy Stenson, former builder, a founder member of St. Ciaran’s Services and long standing member of St Vincent De Paul who lead the parade accompanied by his wife Maura. The Kiltubrid Pipe band and the newly formed Four Green Fields Flute Band kept the music going all along the route. The Carrick Quads, Honda Goldwings, Local Bikers Club, Vintage & Mini Cars, Dancers, Clubs, Organisations, businesses, local groups, schools, sporting organizations all took part in the Parade to make it a colourful and enjoyable occasion. Shops, pubs and hotels decorated their premises and provided live music which added some extra colour and music to the festivities. We would like to thank our Stewards, Gardai, Mike Woods for his help, Keith Nolan for his excellent photos which captured the occasion and all who worked to make the Parade a success and to everyone that took part in the Parade it was a brilliant show of community spirit once again.
