People took to the sunshine-filled city location for the Jig in the Park, an opportunity for everyone to take part in some Irish dancing.

It was followed by what was billed as Ireland's largest ever Maypole Dance and with Irish dance troupe ProdiJIG on hand to teach a few steps, it certainly looked like the place to be at the weekend.

David Keane caught some of the action.
