The stars of hit children's TV show PAW Patrol are arriving at Glenarm Castle this weekend for their first appearance in Northern Ireland.

The canine characters are creating a huge buzz ahead of the Dalriada Festival which features the world famous Highland Games and Strongman events, the Co Antrim Pipe Band Championships and six music stages.

Commitments star Andrew Strong will headline this, Northern Ireland's biggest community festival on Saturday night, marking the 25th anniversary of the cult film with his only Irish concert this year, and supported by local bands The Logues, Storm Tree and Tony and The Villiers.

Irish legends Bagatelle will also perform on the same night.

The festival continues on Sunday, supported by the Belfast Telegraph, with 'Rock the Castle', an electric gig featuring Ireland's only Status Quo tribute band- Q the Quo, as well as Glam Slam, the Gary Moore tribute, and Dolly's Rockin' Country Show which pays homage to some of the genre's biggest stars.

Festival attractions include a horse show, companion dog show, craft village, comedy tent, high ropes and zip line, funfair, gaming zone, fine foods and chef demos, vintage and military displays, dinosaur enclosure and castle tours.

Tickets for the July 16 & 17 event are on sale now at www.dalriada festival.co.uk
