The 1980 St Patrick’s Day Parade

It’s one week until St Patrick’s Day and this week we thought we would delve into the archives and look at the annual parade from 1980.

Large crowds and a number of interesting floats are all part of the parade, which runs through Enniskillen town centre.

There’s even an appearance from Big Bird from Sesame Street, or at least we think it is Big Bird.

Have a look below for another trip down memory lane.

This week’s ‘Throwback Thursday’ comes again from Neil Reid.
