#AnnaliseMurphy - Annalise Murphy can add the honour of grand marshalling this year’s St Patrick’s Day Parade in Dublin to her list of accolades, as The Irish Times reports.

“I’ve spent so many Patrick’s Days away or competing or training, so it’s going to be brilliant just to be at home in Dublin,” said Afloat’s Irish Sailor of the Year for 2016 at the launch of this year’s St Patrick’s Festival, which runs from 16-19 March.

According to festival chief executive Susan Kirby, the Olympic Laser silver medallist was chosen to lead the parade as “she very much personifies the best of Ireland on a global stage and she certainly flew the flag for us all in Rio.”

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
