9 St Patrick's Day scenes from Sunderland and County Durham's past - from Irish dancing to a singsong

Let’s celebrate nine memories of St Patrick’s Day scenes in Sunderland and County Durham in years gone by.

Schools, shops and pubs have hosted great events and the Sunderland Echo’s photographers have been there to record them.

We found these archive photos from The Bridges where singing and Irish dancing kept crowds entertained. There is a reminder of a 2006 event at the New Beginnings Nursery where children marked the day by painting a rainbow.

And we also have Irish dancing which was performed for diners at the National Glass Centre in 2009.

Take a look and see if these scenes bring back wonderful memories.
