IRISH eyes were smiling throughout the region yesterday as St Patrick’s Day celebrations got into full swing.

Pupils at St Josephs J&I School were entertained by Irish dancer Caitlin Kneafsey, 10.

Caitlin’s grandfather, Joe, helped establish links between Halifax and County Mayo.

The Halifax Irish Centre, West Parade, was the centre of festivities beginning with an over 55s luncheon club.

Then in the evening all ages were entertained by the music of Kean Turner followed by The Lager Barrels.
