The Swinford St Patrick's Day parade is going virtual - for the second year in a row.

This is the 70th year of the Swinford parade, but due to Covid-19 restrictions, the traditional parades cannot take place.

To mark the occasion, the Swinford Chats Podcast with Tommy Stenson and Cathal Kelly have teamed up with the town's parade committee to broadcast a 2-hour special video live stream on Facebook and YouTube this Tuesday evening at 8pm.

Hollywood actress and comedian Jane Lynch - best-known for her role as Sue Sylvester in Glee - will be joining Cathal and Tommy to celebrate her Irish roots, as her grandparents Mary Lynskey and William Lynch grew up in the Swinnford area before emigrating to the US in 1918.

The broadcast will feature a host of guests from the worlds of music, sport and business.
