Seven joyous pictures from London’s St Patrick’s Day festival that will make your day

Fun in the sun in London (All pictures by Malcolm McNally)

THERE was a cracking turn out (including a welcome appearance from the sun) yesterday in central London for the annual St Patrick’s Day Parade and Festival. 

From noon until 6pm(when the festivities wrapped up in Trafalgar Square) men women and children from all over the world made a huge effort to make the festival fun, donning silly hats of every conceivable sort, funny wigs, novelty sunglasses, fake leprechaun beards and green, white and gold.

To reward their efforts, we’ve picked seven of our favourite images to share with you here.
