There was fun on Sligo's O'Connell Street on Saturday (4 August) as Yeats enthusiasts dressed up in period costumes to hold Yeats Vintage Day. The street was closed to traffic for the event.
With vintage cars and carriages, and prizes for best dressed man and woman the day was hailed as a great success.
While Mayor David Cawley toured the town in a trap pulled by a stunning black horse there was plenty of entertainment on the street with musicians, readers and poets eager to ensure the enjoyment of all.
The Northwest Hospice was a charity chosen to benefit from the day. The vintage extravaganza is now expected to become part of the Sligo annual social calendar.
The recreation of Edwardian days proved a hit with all and more people pledged to be part of the fun next year.
