Organiser of the event Cllr Troy Gallagher said of the occasion: “St Patrick’s Day is an important date in London’s calendar.
“Raising the Irish flag is a great gesture to mark the occasion, and to celebrate our Irish population in Islington and the contribution they have made to our local community.
