Music fans have attended the first large-scale concert in Ireland since the Covid-19 pandemic began.

A pilot concert took place at Dublin’s Iveagh Gardens on June 10.

500 fans gathered to witness performances by James Vincent McMorrow and Sorcha Richardson.

It is the first in a series of pilot live entertainment events, employing staggered arrival and leaving times for fans, who remained in pods of up to four people.

Demand for the gig was huge, and tickets sold out almost instantly.
