St Patrick’s Day parade in Portlaoise 2017

The St Patrick’s Day parade in Portlaoise 2017 was another great experience for the best children entertainer in Ireland, we are talking about it of the children entertainer Jeca the clown.

Jeca the clown was clowning around since the end of the very successful 5k race for 2017, he felt the sensation of running the last 400m and loved the support from the runners and audience, I even got my a beautiful medal.

2017 Portlaoise St. Patrick’s Day Parade

Friday March 17th, 2017
There will be big changes to this year’s 2017 Portlaoise La Feile Padraig or St Patrick’s Day parade in Portlaoise The parade will start 12.30pm and beginning at County Hall , follow a much shorter route, heading down towards Supermacs and going around the roundabout to come back up to Market Square and then down Main Street.

It is hoped that the changes will draw the crowds to the town for the annual event, and help bring the community together.

The parade will now begin  directly after the Portlaoise Athletic Club’s street race which starts at 11.30pm and it is hoped that people will stay out on the day to see the parade, and the street entertainment afterwards

“2017 Portlaoise St. Patrick’s Day Parade or 2017 Portlaoise La Feile Padraig is an event not to be missed! This is the perfect opportunity to showcase the best Laois has to offer, to those living locally and abroad, who will descend on Laois to celebrate this very auspicious day.”

2016 Portlaoise St. Patrick’s Day Parade

From up on my perch on my stilts, I could see smiling faces and hear laughter ringing through the streets.  I saw a community- people young and old gathered together to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.  This parade is always close to my heart ever since I started clowning around with the Portlaoise Parade March 17th, five years ago.

       As I handed out high fives and laughter by being who I am: a children’s entertainer, I realized that the biggest high five needed to go to the Portlaoise St. Patrick’s Day Parade committee and the businesses whose fundraising and support make it possible for this day to continue to be celebrated year after year.   The committee being who they are- people passionate about the Laois community and Irish culture, won the well-deserved 1st prize in the Laois Arts, Culture and Heritage Awards. This is what makes me proud to be a part of this event, to be able to bring my passion for bringing laughter and smiles to people’s faces alongside the passion of the Laois community.  Can’t wait for another great year! See you again March 17th!

Smiles! 🙂

Children Entertainer in Kilkenny

As children Entertainer Jeca the clown and artist I must to say that I just love Kilkenny town, it is a town that breathe arts and motivate me in my expression arts too.

I have been doing some clowning around for some birthday parties and communion celebrations but I can’t wait to get a special invitation of a local street event, street marketing or a art festival in this lovely town.

If you you never have been to Kilkenny town here are some information about the town:

                                               This image belongs to photoremedy.me

Kilkenny is a medieval town in southeast Ireland. Its grand Kilkenny Castle was built in 1195 by Norman occupiers. The town has deep religious roots and many well-preserved churches and monasteries, including imposing St. Canice’s Cathedral and the Black Abbey Dominican priory, both from the 13th century. It’s also a crafts hub, with shops along its winding lanes selling pottery, paintings and jewellery.

Hope visit one of my favorite town again soon,

Cullohill National School Rathdowney

The best clown in Ireland, the children entertainer Jeca the clown was called to a missing he really like it, be the main entertainer for a school event, and this time the school was the Cullohill National School  in Rathdowney.

It is already my second time in Cullohill town and I must say that so far I had a lot pleasure and great memories as Jeca the clown in this town, both gigs was just amazing for me.

The event was a great one organized by the school about the Positive Positive mental health day and the rise up of a flag. day and the rise up of a flag.

 

As I think the mental health is a very important subject to talk in schools and homes, I decided add some information about this for those interested on it:

What is positive mental health?

Mental health is about more than being free of mental illness such as depression, bipolar disorder, or schizophrenia. It is also about having a positive sense of wellbeing. Positive mental health allows us to enjoy life’s pleasures, believe in our own abilities, cope with the normal stresses of life, work/study productively and enjoy socialising.

Positive mental health is about reaching our potential and feeling like we always have the chance to give everything our best shot. Not just feeling positive, but also getting out there in the big bad world. Positive mental health not only prevents mental ill health, it also leads to greater enjoyment and satisfaction with one’s life.

What can I do to help maintain positive mental health?

  • Eat well, be well. A lot of what you put into your body can affect how you feel inside and out. The right food and drinks can help keep your mind hydrated, active, energetic and at optimum levels for concentration. Visit out Health Hacks page for more info on how to improve your food.
  • Get a good night’s sleep. Most people need at least 7 hours of quality sleep to function properly; if this is causing you problems then it can affect your mood. Don’t worry though, there are a plenty of things you can work on to get better sleep.
  • Exercise for at least 30 minutes a day. You don’t have to run 5k every day or anything, just get your heart rate going for 30 mins of activity at least 5 days a week. Walking, dancing, swimming, team sports are only a few ways you can do this. Get more inspiration on our Health Hacks page.
  • Talk it out. Chatting about things that bother you can help reduce the problem, as they say ‘a problem halved is a problem solved’. If you’re not comfortable talking to a friend or family member, then it could be good to try a non-judgemental listening service like the Samaritans.
  • Cut down on alcohol. Drinking booze when you’re not feeling great can make you feel worse. Alcohol is a depressant so taking a break from it or cutting down on your intake might help improve your mood.
  • Stay in touch with friends. Maintaining relationships is a great way to keep a positive mental health. It can be easy to lose touch with people after school or college and this is a natural occurrence a lot of the time but make the effort to meet up and socialise, it’ll be worth it.
  • Take time out. Some people find it hard to balance life between school/college/work/socialising but it’s important to remember to take time out for yourself sometimes and do things that you enjoy. Me time can be just as vital as maintaining contact with friends and family!
