Thirty thousand people enjoy Siamsa Cois LaoÍ a festival of folk and traditional music in Cork.

Páirc Uí Chaoimh was the venue in Cork for a Siamsa Cois Laoí line up that included traditional dancers, Bagatelle, The Wolfe Tones and The Furey Brothers and Davey Arthur.

There was no doubting that the fans were there to see as well as hear their favourites.

The star of the show was American singer Rita Coolidge.
