DUBLIN CITY WAS lit up last night as the city rang in the New Year with a spectacular lights and fireworks show.

Large crowds turned out at Custom House Quay for the countdown concert and to get a good view of the Liffey Lights Midnight Moment.

Now in its fourth year, the New Year’s Festival Dublin boasts music and performances as well as different family events in the city.

Among these was a performance from Heliosphere’s high flying acrobats and flyboarders at the Liffey Lights Midnight Moment:
