Lego enthusiasts young and old let their imaginations run wild at Brickx Fest 2018 at the weekend.

From a model of 'Sesame Street' favourites Bert and Ernie, to a flower-strewn secret garden and a Dublin city street recreated in miniature, it was a chance for master model builders to show their painstaking creations to fellow Lego aficionados.

Jaroslaw Walter, from Limerick, showed his skill - and patience - with a model Guinness tanker-truck which took him three years to build.

Meanwhile, one of the most spectacular draws at the event at Tayto Park, Co Meath, over the weekend was a re-creation of a bustling Dublin street complete with a model of the Davenport Hotel and a Dublin bus.

Brickx Fest 2018 was organised by the Brickx Club and featured meetings with 'master builders' and competitions.
