Video: Good turnout for Poppy Day parade in Magherafelt

Members of Magherafelt Branch of the Royal British Legion held the first of their two Poppy Day parades in Magherafelt this morning.

Several hundred spectators lined the route of the parade which was accompanied by Aughagaskin Flute Band.

This evening the RBL Branch will hold their second parade and Service of Remembrance in Tobermore.
