It's a St. Patrick's Day that none of us have ever experienced before and hopefully none of us will ever experience again.

With the majority of people confined to their homes, or at least their local areas, this St. Patrick's Day, the Irish public have had to come up with other ways to mark our national holiday.

RTE has created the hashtag #RTEVirtualParade and some of the videos being shared would warm your heart, such as this one taken in Churchtown in Dublin...

There was Irish dancing complete with social distancing in Newbridge...

This one was taken of a pair keeping spirits high from their front window...

And in Cabinteely, there was a lovely rendition of Molly Malone...

Just the kind of wholesome content we need on a day like today. It just goes to show, no matter how bad things look, you'll never beat the spirit of the Irish.
