Giant fire-breathing insects invade streets of Galway

Spectators were fascinated at the Galway International Arts Festival when giant fire-breathing insects took over the streets.

A Spanish company, Serruga, are the creators of the mesmerising pyrotechnic show.

In the video below, fire-breathing insects, beautiful butterflies and giant dragons travel from Eyre Square to the Spanish Arch accompanied by a pulsating electronic musical score.

The last show is tonight at 10pm.

The Galway International Arts Festival is jam-packed with extraordinary events which you can find on their website here.
