An original recording of Elvis Presley's "That's All Right" has been sold at a Dublin auction for €64,000.

It was bought by an internet bidder and was part of an auction of rock 'n' roll memorabilia that took place today in the RDS.

The Elvis recording, which was made in 1954, had an estimate of €50,000-€70,000 going into the auction.

The €64,000 figure does not include fees that are attached to the sale, which will bring the actual cost of the record up to about €80,000 for the successful bidder.

A set of autographs by members of The Beatles signed on the back of an Aer Lingus menu was sold for €2,900 plus fees, which was slightly below the €3,500 estimate.

An autographed single of "Let It Be" by The Beatles went for €4,300.
