Families across the country are being urged to fly a kite for this year's Dublin Kite Festival.

The event - supported by Dublin City Council - returns for its fifth year on Sunday, June 18, at North Bull Island, Clontarf.

Expert kite flier Andrew Beattie will have a special display on the day, and prizes will be up for grabs for different kites.

"Kite flying is an ideal activity in Dublin, especially with our windy weather conditions, and is an ideal activity for both young and old," said Deputy Lord Mayor Rebecca Moynihan at yesterday's launch. For more information visit www.dublincity.ie/kitefest
