An attempt to create the world record for the most "sand angels" will be made on a Wexford beach tomorrow as part of the annual Sand Sculpting Festival.

Professional sculptors from Duathain Dealbh are creating a village of knights and princesses which will be unveiled on Saturday morning on the beach in Duncannon.

Locals and visitors are invited to join in the world record attempt at 2pm. It will be followed by music on the village green.

Other family events taking place on the day include a painting wall, bungee trampoline, water zorbing, tug-o-war, human fuzzball, an exhibition cricket match, and children's beach games.

Committee member Cathy Dowling said there was huge interest in the world record attempt to create the most sand angels in one location.

"This is free to participate in and we are inviting everyone to join us to make the attempt a success."
