Here's what's happening in Carlow for St Patrick's Day
This year, the whole country will be celebrating in style to make up for the last two years.
While the celebrations will have an added day attached with Friday's Bank Holiday, it's important to remember to be cautious, be careful, and be vigilant while enjoying the festivities.
An Garda Síochána have already issued warnings to the public about minding their belongings following a number of stolen mobile phones across the country in recent weeks but also minding your health and the well being of those around you, especially the smaller ones who will no doubt enjoy the celebrations.
Warnings also include staying away from waterways if planning to drink alcohol and try to plan your celebrations ahead of time to be aware of your surroundings and avoiding situations such as walking somewhere on your own in the dark.
With all that being said, this Paddy's Day is shaping up to be a great 2-day event with good looking weather on the way!
