Mountmellick is known for its impressive parade every year on St Patrick’s Day, and this year it certainly didn’t disappoint.
Hundreds gathered on the streets as they witnessed another great parade, one that once again encapsulated all that is great about local community life.
A huge crowd got involved in this year’s parade with local clubs and societies taking part.
Well known animated characters such as Peppa Pig and Minnie Mouse stole the show for the younger audience, however the vintage cars and tractors finished the show with a bang.
The town was bursting with enthusiasm as live music took over the square and the whole area was just a wave of green to highlight the occasion.
The bitterly cold weather didn’t stop the crowds from enjoying the day and they happily posed for photos for the LaoisToday photographer.
Check out some of the great photos taken this afternoon.
