CLARE County Council is inviting people at home and abroad to come together virtually to celebrate St Patrick’s Day 2021 online. Given the limitations presented by current government guidelines, this year, the council are organising and presenting an online St Patrick’s Day event with the theme of ‘Connecting Clare’, and everyone can get involved.
To participate, Clare County Council are requesting people record an individual or group performance and submit it online. A spokesperson for the council said, “We are looking for variety, so music, song, poetry, dance, backyard parade – the choice is yours. Please embrace the theme, ‘Connecting Clare’, in your performances.”
A judging panel selected by Ennis Municipal District will review all entries and, on St Patrick’s Day a series of short videos will be released every hour between 11am and 5pm. There will be prizes for winners in the following categories:
- Best interpretation of theme (€300)
- Best children’s performance (€300)
- Most imaginative entry (€300).
Winners in these categories will be announced during the video released at 5pm. All other performances that secure a place on the final videos released on St Patrick’s Day will be entered into a draw for two €100 Clare Gift Cards.
