Ballylanders celebrated its annual Pattern Day on Wednesday, August 15.

Traditionally a religious festival, in more modern times the event has evolved into a social, sporting and cultural get together that appeals to all ages. 

With such a varied programme, Ballylanders Pattern Festival takes quite a bit of organising and sincere thanks is extended to the many individuals, businesses, clubs, associations and other voluntary groups who continually play their part.
