It was a night of backslapping and backhanders down at the Greystones Municipal District offices last night, as the Paddy’s Day float prizes and the residents association grants were divvied out.

As anyone who witnessed this year’s St Patrick’s Day parade will testify, it was a particularly fine day, with some incredible displays.

Which made the choosing of those winners all the trickier.

In the end, those deemed Perfect Paddy Peacocks were…

Most Original: Wicklow Sudbury School, Best Musical: Music Generation Wicklow Samba Band, Best Social/Cultural: Greystones Churches Together, Best Sports: Greystones Tennis Club, Noble Prize: Kelly Recovery, Best Traditional Irish: Dunphy School Of Irish Dancing, Most Entertaining: Greystones Baton Twirlers, Most Colourful: 1st Wicklow Scout Group, Best Uniformed Organisation: Civil Defence, Most Topical: 1st Wicklow, 2nd Wicklow, St Kilian’s Scout Group, Overall Parade Winners: Greystones Community School, and Best Window Display once again went to Select Interiors.

On the residents association grant funding front, plenty of fine estates got some much-needed moolah, including Kilcoole’s Ard na Mara, Beechwood Park, Bramble Corner, Bullford Crescent, Corrig Drive, Beechcourt Avenue, Hazelwood Crescent and Wellfield, Newcastle’s Seamount Drive, Delgany’s Farrankelly Close, and Greystones’ Burnaby Lawn, Kenmare Heights, Kindlestown Park and Rivendell Grove.

As always, big thanks to young John McGowan for capturing all the schmoozing and smugness. Everyone’s still in the Burnaby, apparently…
