Celebs enjoy sun-filled weekend at Taste event

THE foodies were out in force at Taste of Dublin last weekend and the Iveagh Gardens was heaving with Ireland's top celebs.

Retired rugby ace Brian O'Driscoll and his other half Amy Huberman turned out to enjoy the sunshine on Saturday afternoon, as did Xpose's Peter O'Riordan with his partner Stephanie Evans and their son Oliver.

Also paying a visit was rugby star Gordon D'Arcy and his wife Aoife Cogan and their daughter Soleil.

Sunday was also busy with Mairead Farrell - or should we say Mairead Ronan - and her new hubby Louis popping in to the Prime by Aldi tent.

Spotted enjoying Spring Break's set were Lucy Kennedy, Sile Seoige and Morah Ryan with her son Rex.

Meanwhile, as everyone enjoyed the summer rays by the fountain, kids had their faces painted by helpers dressed as Minions characters, from the upcoming movie.

Elsewhere, crowds gathered on Saturday afternoon to see Kevin Thornton's demonstration at the Nespresso stand.

Other popular demonstrations over the weekend included Roz Purcell and Clodagh McKenna.
