MCD to take Paddy's Day on world tour...

Dennis Desmond, owner of MCD Ireland's biggest concert promoter has given exclusive details of his biggest venture yet to Dennis, who already runs nearly every single concert in the land as well as owning venues such as the Gaiety and the Olympia theatres now wants to own St Paddy's Day as well as launch Ireland's very own version of the Oscars, which will be broadcast around the world on March 16 next.

Going into partnership with the New York based promoter Dave Clarke, The American Ireland Fund and the Irish production company Dreamchaser, Dennis is now set to launch his own version of our national holiday, with the St Paddy's Jam as a festival of its own on St Patrick's Day around the world to celebrate Irish theatre, music, film, art and comedy.

Next March, the St Paddy's Day Jam will be launched in Dublin, New York and London, with music and arts festivals in each country in every Irish venue and bar.

According to Dennis and his business partner Dave Clarke, "We had a St Paddy's Jam in 250 New York bars this year and next year we are going to take it around the world with an honours ceremony on March 16. There is already the Oscars, the Brits, the Grammys... the Irish awards would be the Jamee's? We will be honouring people who have made a hugh contribution to Ireland. Next year's nominees will fall under three categories. Under music, The Chieftains will be honoured and will play in New York. Actor Paul Newman is being looked at for the arts honour for his charity work in Barrettstown, while the Justice award goes to the family of the late President John F Kennedy, whose sister Jean Kennedy Smith will accept the award and has asked for the prize to be donated to the Kennedy Wexford Fund".

One only wonders what's on the cards for next week with Dennis. Maybe a buy-out of Christmas?
