The Chinese New Year festival is underway in Dublin.
The ninth of its kind celebrates the year of the monkey.
The spring fair will provide music, food, film and crafts for all of the family and will continue for two weeks at the CHQ building in the city centre.
Sandra Rodriguez is head of the events programme; “We have a Tai Chi demonstration and a class, then we have a clay making workshop.
“They will be teaching children how to make monkey figures, because it is the year of the monkey and also we have an artist coming from Beijing, he does sugar paintings with hot sugar.”
