TODAY SAW Dun Laoghaire harbour taken over by the Red Bull Flugtag.

The free family event, which organisers say was attended by 65,000 people, saw competitors hand-build their own flying machines and attempt to sail them off a nine-metre flight deck.

With 43 teams taking part, a judgment panel took creativity, showmanship and distance into account and chose Pink Panther from Kildare (pictured in final photo) as the winning entrants after they glided 12 metres.
