Paddy's plans

TIMES MIGHT be tough but in Ballymote, local business people are trying to be positive. They've just announced plans to expand the St. Patrick's Parade from a one-day event to a full weekend as part of The Gathering 2013.

For the past three years, the town's St. Patrick's Day Parade has been a major success.

This year, plans include a visitors' golf competition, a soccer tournament, ceili and other events. The Ballymote Business Association is also organising a photographic exhibition as part of the festival.

Anyone with old photos email ballymotebusinessassociation@gmail.com.

Mr. Aidan Tighe, of the Business Association, has urged to people to "get their thinking caps on" to come up with ideas for floats and entries for the Parade.

He said: "We want everyone to invite their family and friends from near and far to join us."
