TENS of thousands of people descended on Limerick city on Sunday night for the return of the Riverfest fireworks display.

Crowds began gathering along the River Shannon from around 9pm in the hope of securing a good vantage point at Clancy Strand, Sarsfield Bridge or Thomond Bridge.

The weather for the fireworks - the first since 2019 - was dry and mild and the skies above the city were virtually cloud-free for the display which kicked-off just before 10.30pm.
