Ireland's first live gig since the start of the pandemic has been taking place in Dublin this evening.

James Vincent McMorrow is headlining the concert in the Iveagh Gardens, with support from Sorcha Richardson.

It's the first of several live events due to take place over the coming weeks and months.

Just 500 people are attending the socially-distanced trial event, with tickets selling out in minutes when they went on sale last week.

However, over 2,500 others have been tuning in for a free live stream of the event.

Addressing the crowd tonight, McMorrow said he'd "never been as nervous [about] anything in my entire life" - but it "meant the world" to be able to perform music again.

He urged those in attendance to make a "500 person crowd sound like 10,000".
