Thousands throng the streets of Cork for St Patrick's Day parade 

The organisers and attendees of this year's St Patrick's Day parade couldn't have asked for a better day to celebrate our patron saint. 

following a week of rain and weather warning, the sun came out early on Sunday, giving the city the perfect day to enjoy the entertainment. 

Crowds packed to city centre route to enjoy the floats, dancing and performance of the 2,000 participants. Olympian and proud Corkman Rob Heffernan led proceedings as Grand Marshal while Lord Mayor Mick Finn took part on an electric. 

Pictures and video to follow.
