More than 5,000 people attended last weekend’s Food and Drink Festival – a record crowd for the event.

Despite it being moved to Knockaloe in Patrick at the last minute, after problems with water-logging at the Nunnery grounds, visitor numbers exceeded last year’s figures.

The Food and Drink Festival is run by the Department of Environment, Food and Agriculture as a way of showcasing local producers and the contribution they make to the economy.

You can see a full report from the festival on TVIM from 1pm.
