The richness and diversity of cultures which exist in Dungannon will be the focus of this year’s St Patrick’s Day celebrations.

Kicking off from 3pm, this year’s event has been billed as a carnival style celebration, and will feature a street procession of floats and displays, with the aim of recognising the cultural identity of communities within the area.

The event will also entail celebrating traditions through music, song and dance within the Borough, and children from several schools and clubs will be preforming colourful music and dance.

Traditional bands will also be in attendance for the event, hosted by Dungannon Gaelic Forum.
