Che Guevara and Maureen O'Hara hung out at the grand opening of Epic Ireland in Dublin yesterday.
The aerial performers from Fidget Feet helped get the brand new exhibition off the ground in an airborne boat.
Cutting the ribbon on the visitor centre - which tells the story of Irish people around the world - in the vaults of the historic CHQ building in Dublin's Docklands, former President Mary Robinson paid tribute to the "70 million people living on this globe who claim Irish descent".
And she described the interactive experience designed by the company behind Titanic Belfast - which opens to the public today - as "an idea whose time has come". "What has been achieved here is an incredible experience for all of us which will enhance our connection with those who emigrated," she said.
