#UmbrellaDay - Show us your brollies!
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.
