St Patrick’s Day in Ballyconnell this year was a cool damp day, but still the crowds came out to support the local parade. There was a good selection of floats in this year’s parade, vintage tractors, local youth groups and of course music from the St. Mary’s Pipe Band from Derrylin. All in all a good day was had by all………to see more images please go to Lake Avenue House B&B facebook page.
