The 2nd Battalion of the Royal Irish Regiment performed a guard of honour at Belfast City Hall's Cenotaph and Garden of Remembrance on Sunday, November 10, where several thousand turned out for Northern Ireland's main commemoration service.
Among those laying wreaths were First Minister Peter Robinson, her Majesty's Lord Lieutenant of Belfast Dame Mary Peters, with tributes led by Deputy Lord Mayor Alderman Christopher Stalford.
In Enniskillen Ireland's Taoiseach Enda Kenny laid a laurel wreath where the IRA killed 11 people in a Poppy Day bomb in 1987.
Northern Ireland Secretary Theresa Villiers laid a poppy wreath at the Co Fermanagh memorial, which was rebuilt after the bomb, as did local Stormont Assembly members Arlene Foster and Tom Elliott.
Large services were also held in Londonderry and Newry.
