Mrs Brown to go green.

It has just been announced that actor and comedian Brendan O'Carroll has been made the Grand Marshal for the big St Patrick's Day parade in Dublin.

The hugely successful Dubliner follows Nicky Byrne, Panti Bliss and Johnny Giles to name but a few in leading the annual festival parade of our patron saint through the capital city.

O'Carroll's career continues to go from strength to strength as his Mrs Brown show keeps on winning awards as well as him being named as Philanthropist of the Year for his amazing charity work with St Vincent De Paul.
