Wave goodbye to the snake and say hello to the horse.

The Chinese New Year was ushered in yesterday with a showcase of Chinese culture in Dublin's Temple Bar, including a colourful Mongolian Horse Dance.

The Year of the Horse – the 4712th year of the Chinese calendar – follows on from the Year of the Snake.

The Chinese New Year Festival will take place in Dublin until February 14, with various events scheduled around the city.

Further details of the festival are available at www.cny.ie.
