If your name is Patrick and you live in Co Clare, you may be in the running for a big role this St Patrick's day.

The County Council there wants to find the county's oldest resident named Patrick to be the Grand Marshall for its parade in Ennis on March 17th.

Organisers say it is all about giving recognition to older people, who have made important contributions to the community throughout their lives.

So, if you or someone you know might be a contender for the honour, then you can contact organisers by 4pm on the March 2nd.
