The rain did not dampen the spirits as the people of Killeshin and Graiguecullen got out to celebrate St Patrick’s Day.
The action got underway at 10.30am with the people of Killeshin up first.
All of the groups and societies were well represented with the parading ending in mass at 11am.
It was straight to Graiguecullen then where their parade kicked off at 11am.
The legendary Jack Bolton was grand marshall and he led the parade brilliantly.
We have more than 100 pictures from the two parades which demonstrates the big crowds that came out.
Photographer Paul Dargan was present in both locations this morning.
Check out his pictures from both below:
