Roundup of St Patrick’s Day as seen through the Temple Bar live camera

We watch the live cam so you don’t have to.

THROUGHOUT THIS ST Patrick’s Day the Temple Bar live cam has been, at times, compelling viewing.

Last night it provided this image of a packed Essex Street East leading up into Temple Bar.

We’ve kept an eye on it throughout the day to see how the celebrations have progressed.

9.30am

After the madness of last night, quietness has descended on Temple Bar

11am

A busker plays Neil Young’s Needle and the Damage Done. We try not to weep.

11.30am

The busker has moved onto Pink Floyd’s Wish You Were Here, before livening it up with U2′s One.

11.30

11.50am

Ah yes, that most Irish of St Patrick’s Day traditions, a blow up sex doll:

12.25pm

THE PUB IS OPEN!

1.00pm

The busker (or possibly a singer inside The Temple Bar pub) is really getting the party started with Sometimes You Can’t Make it On your Own. A lone vuvuzela drowns him out.

1.40pm

A second blow up doll! And it looks like it belongs to a different person. Bless.

The parade is currently snaking through the city centre, which is probably why it’s relatively quiet.

2.15pm

Well, that escalated quickly

3.00pm

Bouts of spontaneous cheering and singing of 7 Nation Army. Just the opening bass line mind.

3.15pm

At 3.15 there’s a big crowd singalong to that popular Irish classic Wonderwall.

Followed swiftly by some Mumford and Sons. And Teenage Dirtbag.

4.00pm

Increased whistle blowing.

A vehicle attempts the impossible.

4.30pm

We hear Galway Girl for the first time. The visitors are unsure of the words, but gladly join in with the diddly-eyes and whoops.

Followed by Mumford and Son’s Little Lion Man for a second time. A popular choice.

5.00pm

More inexplicable White Stripes singing. More vuvuzelas. We spot a culprit.

That concludes our Temple Bar live cam coverage for now. Stay safe out there!
