Song, dance, art and fun in the sun - thousands of children around the country let their creative juices flow for Cruinniú na nÓg.

Over 500 free creative activities for under-18s took place as part of the Creative Ireland initiative.

From clowning around with the Dublin Circus Project and learning drumming with Native American Chickasaw tribe in Cabra to creating Waterford's largest colouring book, children of all ages let their imaginations run wild.

Cruinniú na nÓg, which was supported by local authorities, encouraged young people to take part in creative activities in their neighbourhoods.
