Faces of Mayo's St. Patrick's Day parades

Despite the mixed weather conditions across the county yesterday, the St. Patrick's Day parades throughout Mayo were well attended.

Congratulations to everybody involved, especially the organisers.

Here is a selection for images from our photographers in a number of towns and villages as well as a video from the wonderful electric parade in Crossmolina.
