Two women have certainly put their Co Clare town on the map today.

Becky O'Farrell and Lorraine Morrissey took part in a very special two-person parade in Carragaholt to mark St Patrick's Day.

Around 40 people turned out to watch the duo sweep the streets and have a little dance as part of what must be the country's briefest St Patrick's Day parage.

Becky put the video on her Facebook page earlier today, where it has already been shared more than 100 times.

"Ladies and gentlemen.. The moment you have all been waiting for has finally arrived!! The direct result of a long years hard work by the Carrigaholt parade committee/spectators - THE 2016 CARRIGAHOLT ST PATRICKS DAY PARADE," she wrote on her page.

"Sincere thanks to the huge crowd that turned out and made this momentous occasion."

This is not the first year the dynamic duo took to the streets for Paddy's Day.

"it's the third year now we have done it. Myself and Lorraine walked around the corner with flags the first year as a complete joke," Becky (24) told

"Then last year we started to get requests from a lot of people for another so we made it bigger and had two toy tractors coming around the corner, then this year there was requests again so we decided to do that."
