Up to 5,000 fans swapped sun-hats for Wellingtons hour by hour during mixed weather at Temple House in Ballymote, Co Sligo.

More than 80 bands appeared at the 1,000-acre site where the Perceval Family have lived since 1665.

The three-day festival ended yesterday with performances from The Saw Doctors, Damien Dempsey and Jamaica's Wailers.

Estate owner Roderick Perceval (41), who invested several hundred thousand euro in his first festival in the grounds, said he hopes to make it an annual event.
