Paddy's Day float mimicking dead pensioner being brought to Carlow post office goes viral
A van pulls the float along that bears a sign saying: ‘No pulse no pension’
A video has emerged online of a Paddy's Day parade in Co Clare depicting an incident where a deceased pensioner was brought to a post office in Co Carlow.
The annual parade in Kilfenora often features cheeky floats depicting some of the news stories of the year and this one was no different.
It appears some lads have created a makeshift post office, with a clerk and a desk while two of them prop up a third man.
