A celebration to mark the end mummering season took place in Mohill on Sunday evening.

The parade which was organised by Edwina Guckian saw dancers and singers march through the town.

Mumming is an Irish tradition of dressing in disguise and visiting homes within the community during the Christmas period.


Individuals in Leitrim have been participating in the sowing the seed project in recent months which allowed locals to make their own mummering costumes and hats from straw they had grown themselves.

Tommy Stenson attended the parade in Mohill.
