The organisers say they feel confident to go ahead with plans.
It's full steam ahead for the Edenderry St. Patrick's Day parade.
The town's parade committee has officially launched this year's event, saying they feel confident to go ahead with plans given the improving covid-19 situation and announcements from other festivals.
Since starting in 2011, the parade has become one of the largest in the midlands.
Local woman Bernie Brady will retake her position as grand marshall, as her duties were put on hold previously due to covid, and the committee is inviting any donations to help fund the event.
If you wish to help with funding this year, you can contact Shane on 083 091 7020.
