Pictures of the colourful banners, and floats, were shared by many on social media, and illustrated the creativity and hardwork of so many young people, volunteers, and staff.
Here are some of the impressive displays that were created for St. Patrick's Day - well done everyone!

Good luck to all in Ballinamore Foróige Club, who are having a sleep-out on March 16th, to raise awareness about the issue of homelessness.
Below is a piece written by one of the young people in the club, outlining the aim of their project!
Minister for Children and Youth Affairs. Dr. Katherine Zappone TD visited a number of Foróige projects in Blanchardstown earlier this week.
She met with young people from Mulhuddart and Corduff Youth Projects who highlighted, through their Aldi Foróige Youth Citizenship projects, the positive work they have been involved with locally such as Clean-up Corduff; the Community Garden; and a petition to Fingal Co. Council to reinstate the playground in Corduff.
Foróige Clubs and Groups across the country marked FAB Feb (Foróige Against Bullying month) by running a series of workshops and activities to raise awareness about the issue of bullying.
Foróige's #FABFEB is a month dedicated to spreading an anti-bullying message, and to enable young people to develop solutions to deal with the issue.
Well done to everyone who took part in #FABFAB - here are just a few of the activites that took place during February!
