Waiting for Video...

Thousands of people enjoyed the colourful St Patrick’s Carnival Parade in Belfast City Centre on Sunday.

Organised by Belfast City Council, the celebrations were led by the Patron Saint of Ireland himself ‘St Patrick’.

Crowds were also entertained at a free concert featuring former X-factor winner Shayne Ward at Custom House Square.

Speaking at the event Lord Mayor Councillor Mairtin Ó Muilleoir said: “Belfast has really gotten into its stride being seen across the world as a forward thinking, attractive city with many advantages - particularly its young population.

‘We have shown the world that we can put on a show and celebrate with the best of them.”
