A street performance artist broke a world record yesterday, but most people couldn't watch it.

The Space Cowboy broke the record for the most weight dragged from the eye sockets.

The Australian daredevil dragged a tricycle full of people, with a combined weight of 414.3kg, 10 metres using his eye sockets.

He will be taking part in the Street Performance World Championship in Fitzgerald Park in Cork and People's Park in Portlaoise, Co Laois, on June 11 and 12, and in Dublin's Merrion Square on June 16-19. The festival is free.

Also yesterday, thousands of people dressed as Wally of 'Where's Wally' fame to help break the record of the largest Wally gathering.
