KILKENNY hosted one of its biggest parades in many years - with local GAA clubs out in force celebrating the heritage of gaelic games in the county.

There were further parades in Urlingford, Inistioge and Graignamanagh along with Goresbridge which organised its first ever parade this year.

Not even the weather dampened the enthusiasm of participants and the thousands who attended the parades in Kilkenny city and county.

See this week’s Kilkenny People for a four-page special on all the Parades.
