'My wedding was a military wedding. It was lashing raining! Photos were taken at marlfield lake. A bolt of lightning hit the church and cut the power as I was signing the register, so it was very memorable!' Sent in by Kellyann Condon

It turns out the simple 'brolly' plays rather an important part in many of the biggest events in Irish life.

Readers of Independent.ie shared some fantastic photographs of their brollies for #UmbrellaDay.

The humble brolly featured in many big events - First Holy Communions, weddings and first days of school.

See the gallery above - did your photo make it in?
