"Room With A View" For Granny At Cork St Patrick's Day Festival
William Kelleher from Ballinlough ensures his grandmother Norah Horgan will have a bird's eye view of the Parade
Cork's St Patrick's festival is kicking off today with the countdown well and truly on to the main event, the annual parade.
And for one Cork grandmother and her grandson it's going to be an extra special event this year.
Like many Norah Horgan has been physically unable to attend the parade but her grandson William Kelleher from Ballinlough had a novel idea when he saw the Maldron on the South Mall being built last year - even if it has cost him all his pocket money.
