VIDEO - Thousands party in Temple bar for St Patrick's Day
This was Temple Bar at the height of St Patrick's Day celebrations yesterday.
Thousands of people - many of them tourists - flocked to the area in Dublin's city centre to celebrate the national holiday.
Gardai mingled among the revelers and party-goers.
As our video shows, the celebrations were good-natured.
Most were sporting the colour green, dancing to music, drinking or enjoying an old fashioned smooch and cuddle.
Excess was the order of the day when it came to litter.
Bins were overflowing throughout the city centre and cans and bottles were strewn along the streets.
Staff in Dublin City council were out on the streets day and night in a bid to keep the city centre litter free.
However due to the huge numbers partying in the City centre yesterday, they were fighting a futile battle for several hours.
