IT’S ST PATRICK’S Day.

Parades took place around the country to celebrate the feast day of Ireland’s patron saint.

The main parade in Dublin began at 12pm, and made its way through the city centre throughout the afternoon.

Meanwhile, things kicked off a bit later in Cork, where the parade began at 1pm.

Events also took place in Galway, while organisers of events in Limerick expected around 80,000 people to watch a parade on the theme of the 50th anniversary of the moon landing.

Here’s how events unfolded over the last few hours.
