Jason Byrne and Deirdre O'Kane announced as Grand Marshal duo for Dublin St Patrick's Day parade

Jason Byrne and Deirdre O’Kane have been announced as the Grand Marshals for the St Patrick’s Day parade in Dublin this year.

As this year’s theme is storytelling – Scéalaíocht agus Seanchaí – organisers chose the comedic pair for their contributions to Irish comedy and acting, cornerstones of the Irish storytelling tradition.

Both will also appear in the 3Arena on St Patrick’s night for a special ‘Paddy’s Night in Support of Comic Relief’.

Dubliner Jason said it was an honour to be chosen for the role.
