Images of Corpus Christi Processions in Clare

The Feast of Corpus Christi falls on Thursday 4th June this year. In Ireland the feast day is now celebrated on the following Sunday. In the past, the procession on Corpus Christi was a major event in the communal life of every town and village in the country. A handful of photographs capture the events in Foto, Clare County Library’s online image collection. Click here...
