The sun shone just in time for Mountmellick's St Patrick's Day parade, with a host of children's sports clubs pride of place in the parade.

Yarn Bombing Mountmellick had a colourful float while fire eaters, clowns and bouncy castle fun made it a super day for families.

The parade was led by guest of honour Paralympic swimmer Nicole Turner from Laois, with music from St Joseph's Accordion Band. 

There were lots of big trucks, tractors and vintage cars too. 

Watch the full parade.
