One of the world's leading parkour athletes has made these Dublin landmarks her playground as part of a new active lifestyle campaign.

Celebrity stunt double Katie McDonnell stars in the first of Lucozade Sport’s ‘Made to Move Sessions’ , which hopes to inspire people to go have more active lives.

The 26-year-old parkour star was seen showing off her moves outside the Bord Gais Energy Theatre, around Temple Bar, the Guinness Storehouse and various Dublin bridges.

After taking her impressive skills to the street, the Windsor local professed her love of Ireland's capital.

"This is my first trip here and I’ve absolutely loved freerunning through the capital. I’ve been blown away by the friendly reactions I’ve received, and the landscape has been really varied and cool to perform against," she said.

"I’m so proud to get behind Lucozade Sport’s Made To Move campaign and help encourage people to move more and get more active."
