Chatshow host Graham Norton was back in west Cork for the weekend as he headlined the Ahakista August festival.

The best-selling author and TV presenter was master of ceremonies at the festival's annual quiz night. He was joined by local rugby heroes Fineen and Josh Wycherley, of Ireland and Munster fame.

The brothers were a hit with the young members of Bantry Bay Rugby Football Club.

The annual August festival includes a host of activities from an art exhibition to road bowling, a tug-of-war and a treasure hunt.

For the energetic, there was a guided walk on the Sheepshead Way on Saturday while there was an abundance of live music at local pubs.
