Palm Sunday services were taking place across Clogher Diocese today with a number of parishes holding a Palm Sunday procession before the service.

The largest turnout was in Enniskillen where the procession was led by Tom, the donkey with his owner, Matthew Hall, followed by Dean Kenneth Hall; Adele Moore, Parish Reader; churchwardens, choir and more than 200 parishioners.

At Lisbellaw Parish Church, it was Chloe, the donkey from Fermanagh Fun Farm, who led the procession from the Orange Hall to the Sunday morning service conducted by Revd William Jeffrey.

In Glaslough, the Revd Tim Irvine led the service in St. Salvator's Church, Donagh Group of Parishes, and also led the procession of parishioners waving palm branches.

The Palm Sunday service at Inishmacsaint Parish Church began at the church gate with palm crosses handed out, followed by a short procession around the church.
