St Patrick's Day festival

Take a trip down memory lane with a St Patrick’s Day film compilation presented Belfast Film Festival.

You’ll see a young Seamus Heaney organising a children’s play, a bedraggled Richard Harris telling Gerry Kelly what St. Patricks Day means to him and a young Paul Clark debating the origins of the Saint. Also featuring parades of all sorts that took place through the ages. Enjoy!
