Roll up, roll up - Dublin's Merrion Square will be filled with street performers and circus acts as part of Ireland's biggest free summer festival.

The Laya Healthcare City Spectacular has a line-up featuring sword-swallowing Guinness world record holder the Space Cowboy, Argentinian football freestyler Victor Rubilar and all-female aerial acrobatic show The Silver Starlets. Also entertaining are balloon man Mr Toon and breakdance trio B-Treme.

Irish funnymen Damo Clarke and Kevin O'Sullivan will MC street performance stages across the weekend.

Health guru Karl Henry will be podcasting live from the It's Good To Live Stage with rugby great Johnny Sexton.

There'll be musical performances, a street food market and a Scruffs Dog Show for family pets. The show runs until tomorrow.
