Bad weather fails to dampen Ireland's NYE celebrations

Even the recent bad spell of weather couldn't dampen spirits in Dublin last night as thousands celebrated the start of 2016 by dancing in the streets.

Some 1,500 drummers smashed the world record for the largest-ever assembly of bodhrán players.

Meanwhile, Le Galaxie, All Tvvins and Wyvern Lingo played at the Street Fest on St Stephen's Green.

The 3Arena welcomed The Coronas, Fatboy Slim and Ryan Sheridan for the Three Countdown Concert.

In Limerick, The O'Malleys hosted an eclectic New Year concert at Dolan's Warehouse.

In Dingle, there was a fireworks display, followed by a procession led by the Dingle Fife and Drum Band.
