A video of a second group of people in a St Paddy's Day parade has emerged mimicking an incident where a deceased pensioner was brought to a post office in Co Carlow. 

It is unclear whether the people were part of the parade or had joined in from the side as it continued on its route.

It is understood the video was captured in Belmullet, County Mayo.

Two women wearing face masks are seen pulling a dressed up mannequin or blow-up doll behind the person with a box painted green with writing on it reading 'Carlow Post Office'.

Earlier, a video has emerged online of a Paddy's Day parade in Co Clare depicting the same incident.

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 appeared some people created a makeshift post office, with a clerk and a desk while two of them prop up a third man.

A van pulls the float along that bears a sign saying: ‘No pulse no pension’.

It recalls the story from earlier this year when a deceased man was brought into a post office in January to collect his pension.

One man was later charged with two counts of deception after allegedly trying to collect his dead uncle’s pension.
