The undoubted highlight of the Ireland BikeFest celebrations in Killarney at the weekend was a spectacular parade of bikes through the town centre this Sunday morning with the rumble of the dream machines heard for miles around.

Hundreds of people lined the streets and the roads as the parade wound its way from Muckross Road to the two centre and some of the bizarre helmets chosen by a number of the participants were even more eye-catching than the bikes themselves.

There were some terrify Harley Davidson models on show and anyone with even a passing interest in motorcycles enjoyed a real treat as they roared through the streets.

Over the course of the weekend the bikers embarked on a number of daily ride-outs, taking in the Ring of Kerry, Caragh Lake and several other routes.
