Revellers celebrate a pandemic St Patrick’s Day

Ireland is marking its second St Patrick’s Day under a national Covid-19 lockdown.

Despite the shadow of the pandemic, pops of green and orange were still to be found on the sunlit streets of Dublin on Wednesday.

With traditional parades and events moved online, some determined Dubliners turned out to mark the occasion amid a strong Garda presence.
