SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - An event honoring the St. Patrick's Day Parade Grand Marshal was held Thursday night at Benedictine.

He was presented with a portrait of the school's campus. Dennis Counihan is a BC grad and tells us the school prepared him for college and everything that has come in his life since.

However, he is not the first Benedictine graduate - or Grand Marshal - in the family.

"It's a very special night. I am following in my father's footsteps. He was Grand Marshal in 1988. A Benedictine graduate of 1935. It is special in that regard," said Counihan.

Counihan's brother, Brian is also this year's parade committee chairman. Dennis tells us he is most excited about leading the parade with his family at his side.
