HUNDREDS of people lined the streets of Holyhead last week to celebrate St. David's Day.

The event had been re-scheduled for Thursday (March 8) after the effects of Storm Emma on the Town put a stop to their original parade.

Residents joined in with the parade route, singing and chanting along as they celebrated Welsh history and culture.

Holyhead high street was decorated with flags and bunting as the Town's businesses showed their support for the event.

The sunny weather on the day meant that the parade was able to leave St Mary’s church at 9:30am before slowly making its way up to Newry Green.

Along the way, hundreds of school children from local primary and secondary schools in the area, along with a vast number of people from community groups sang traditional Welsh songs such as Calon Lan.

The parade then stopped at St Cybi’s to take a moment of reflection for Saint David, who was said to be a distant relative of Cybi.

Awaiting on Newry Green was a giant Y Ddraig Goch flag, spanning half a football pitch in size.

The flag took centre stage with crowds gathering around singing Land of My Father and waving handmade flags.

The parade was made possible thanks to close partnerships of community groups, schools, organisations and local people in Holyhead.

Menter Iaith Mon and Mon CF’s Local Conversation project funded through People’s health Trust were particularly influential in the organisation of the event which proved to be a success.
