VIDEO: It had to happen... the Burkes get the St Patrick's Day float treatment

St Patrick's Day parades wouldn't be the same without the odd float seizing the zeitgeist of the last few weeks.

In 2019, a video of a float showing a digger stealing an ATM at the St Patrick’s Day parade in Kingscourt went viral on social media.

The float was a reference to the ATM thefts at the time when a "large digger" was used to raid a cash machine in the town.

This year, in Shrule, Co Mayo, recent scenes from the High Court - in which members of the Burke family were forcibly removed - were recreated, much to the amusement of parade-goers looking on.
