Your Paddy’s Day Picture Special

We asked you to send us your St Patrick’s Day pics and let us know how you celebrated our National Day last weekend.

We had pics from Australia, the States and from much closer to home

The first five pics in our slideshow were sent to us by Jimmy Wilson and are of the St. Patrick’s Day festival at the Northwest Baptist Church at Great James St.

Pics six and seven come from Claire Peterson in Salt Lake City, Utah, U.S.A.

“ The children featured are all ‘ex pats’” says Claire.

“They are Noah, Alexa and Zahra Neilsen, formally of Eglinton and Jacob and Georgia Peterson, formerly of Jordanstown. The sixth child is a Utah local, Sydney Anderson.”

From Utah to Perth, Australia and a photo sent to us by Steve Scott showing a group of expats celebrating at the Paddo pub.

Among those pictured are Padraig Toner, Stephen Scott, Gavin Donaghy, Jonny Hood, Bridgeen Harkin, Shane McCloskey, Roisin Curley, Sean Toner, Jason Gavy, Karen Mc Cole, Stephen Conway and Clare Conway and Stuart Beattie.

Next we have a pic of Claire, Addie, Riley and Taylor, celebrating in Savannah, Georgia, USA.

Mum Kathleen Bradley McCarthy is originally from Kilrea.

Nathan Flatman and son Matthew (8) sent us their pics from Twickenham, where Ireland lost to England last Saturday.

“Although the result didn’t go the right way for Matthew, we still had a day to remember,” says Nathan.

Greencastle Youth Club sent us some pics from their celebration.

You can see loads more on their website at Greencastle YC

And finally the Tracey family sent us their pics from the annual parade in New York city and from the Rockland County Parade.

Thanks to all who sent us their pics
