THE Mayo Day celebrations kicked off on a high note in the county town this morning.
Pupils from local schools took to the streets of Castlebar decked out in the Mayo colours and waving their green and red flags.
Music from a number of their bands added to the colourful, carnival atmosphere as the students celebrated their pride in their county.
There are events happening in Castlebar tomorrow (Saturday), the official Mayo Day, and all around the county, indeed the world, to celebrate our 'Mayo-ness'.
Here's wishing everyone a Happy Mayo Day – enjoy the fun wherever you are.
