Participants and spectators alike braved a bracing cold wind and freezing conditions for the annual Saint Patrick's Day parade through Drogheda. The parade followed the usual route, but there was nothing usual about the weather. A strong easterly wind made it a challenge for those taking part, while the crowds watching struggled to keep warm. However, everyone seemed to enjoy themselves.
