Iconic rockers The Rolling Stones have arrived in Ireland for their huge outdoor concert this week - and frontman Mick Jagger took in a spot of cricket ahead of the big show.

The group touched down in Dublin on Sunday and will seemingly spent a few days in the city before their concert at Croke Park on Thursday.

Jagger (74), Keith Richards (74), Charlie Watts (76) and Ronnie Wood (70) were all smiles and waves as they emerged from their plane at Dublin airport.

And frontman Jagger wasted no time before heading to Malahide to take in the action at Ireland's cricket match, where they faced Pakistan.

Enjoying a drink in the sunshine, the singer also stopped to chat with Dennis Cousins, the commercial director of Cricket Ireland, on what was day three of the international cricket test match.

The Croke Park gig marks the start of the band's European leg of their No Filter tour.

They will then depart for the UK, and will perform in London, Edinburgh and Cardiff.
