Annalise Murphy has been announced as the Grand Marshall for this year's St Patrick's Day Parade.
The 27 year old Olympic silver medalist was revealed this morning as the leader of this year's celebrations.
On receiving the honour of Grand Marshal, Annalise said; “I am really honoured and thrilled to be this year’s Grand Marshal. I am always extremely proud to represent Ireland but that is normally out on the water, so this will be a completely different experience for me. The Parade is always a great day and I’m really looking forward to being a part of it."
Previous Grand Marshall's of the parade include Katie Taylor and Brendan O' Carroll.
