Photographer's Note

Pictured here is a shot taken at the World Street Performers final which is an annual event held in Dublin since 2010.

Every summer, Merrion Square in the heart of the city is closed to traffic and the huge green Georgian park and its surrounding streets are turned into a carnival as the greatest performers from around the world compete for the title. Jugglers, sword swallowers, acrobats and comedians all vie for the coveted title.

This girl was part of a comedy / daring act who along with her colleague amused the crowds with tumbling, jumping, juggling and an impressive display of fire skills. I caught her here just as she had thrown her baton in the air as it was blazing away.

A brilliant festival, family oriented and completely free of charge, always worth a visit if you are in the city on the right weekend.

Thanks for looking!
