Nineteen of the best pictures from St Patrick's Day 2024

Irish eyes were smiling on Leeds today as the St Patrick’s Day celebrations got underway.

Despite a soggy start, by the time the parade came through the city centre, the rain eased and the sun even broke through as the festivities on Millennium Square got underway.

It featured Irish traditional music from the Leeds branch of Comhaltas Ceoltoiri Eireann, local favourites Sean Harrington and Luke Flear, the Leeds Irish Choir and Tommy K the DJ with the best in Irish dance from the Joyce O’Donnell and St Aldred’s Schools of Dance and Leeds University Union Dancers.

Rugby legend Rob Burrow and his family were also present to cut the ribbon to start the parade.
