Thousands of festival goers flocked into Bundoran for the weekend as the 9th annual Sea Sessions Surf and Music Festival took place at Main Beach. Despite some cold and wet conditions, spirits weren’t dampened as revellers enjoyed headliners Gavin James, Ash and Tinie Tempah as well as countless other local and national acts who performed in the seaside town.
Adventure seekers weren’t left out as a number of displays within the festival site showcased skateboarding and biking. The Hurley expression sessions held at Tullan Strand were won by Liam Turner with Noah Lane coming second. Saturday was also Barefoot Beach Sports day with a number of activities including Beach Rugby won by the Liquid Therapy team and the Beach Soccer competition won by the Young Boys of Sound from Ballyshannon.
