And as the largest private party in Europe, a hiccup like damaged gates wasn't going to stop the annual Trinity Ball going ahead.

Thousands of students donned their finery last night and streamed through Trinity's Front Arch to attend the ball.

But for once the 200-year-old gates weren't there.

Instead, they had been replaced by temporary gates after the driver of a car rammed through them earlier this week.

However, the crash wasn't going to stop the party in Dublin's city centre with students rocking out to bands including 2ManyDJs and Dead Prezidents as well as singer Example.
