A world-class exhibition telling the tale of three heroic Irish Antarctic explorers, Ernest Shackleton, from Kildare, Tom Crean from Kerry, and Tim McCarthy from Cork, has opened in Dublin.
To celebrate the arrival of the exhibition at Dun Laoghaire Harbour, mini explorers Cadin Greene (6), Blaine Greene (7) and Lucia Spollen-Behrens (5) met up with baby husky Zara for an icy adventure.
A festival has been organised to coincide with the exhibition at Santa's Arctic Kingdom in Dun Laoghaire Shopping Centre, with a 60-metre ice slide, live ice sculpture carvings, a live crib, a Christmas market and a fireworks displays.
