In Pictures: Thousands line streets of Armagh for St Patrick’s Day celebrations

Thousands lined the streets of Armagh for the St Patrick’s Day parade through the heart of the ecclesiastical capital of Ireland this afternoon.

The streets were abuzz with sound, vibrance and colour as hundreds of groups participated in the community-led procession, which was watched by large crowds from start to finish

It got going from the Christian Brothers’ Primary School on the Keady Road around 2.30pm, before making its way up Irish Street and down Ogle street, before coming to its conclusion on the Cathedral Road.
