An estimated 75,000 people, warmed by early Spring sunshine, lined the streets of Manchester for the 26th annual St. Patrick's parade as part of the city's 21st Irish Festival.
The two-mile route from the Irish World Heritage Centre in Cheetham Hill to Albert Square saw emerald clad community groups, animals and pipe bands take part in the celebratory procession.
