Since the 17th Century the Irish have celebrated a religious feast day in commemoration of their patron saint on the 17th March every year.
Parades are held in towns and cities all over Ireland and in many parts of the world.
I went to my local town's parade this afternoon which was well attended despite the rain.
Dancing to traditional music was fun to watch.
Live entertainment in the supermarket made a pleasant change.
Last year everyone enjoyed the parade in the sunshine.
Do let me know if you've enjoyed this little snapshot of our special day in the Emerald Isle.
Have a great weekend.
