A plaque to mark 55 years since The Beatles played in Dublin has been unveiled in the city centre.

It's been installed on the Abbey Street side of the Arnotts building, which used to be home to the Adelphi Cinema.

The Beatles only ever played two shows in Ireland, and both of them were at that venue - on the 7th of November 1963.

Former Lord Mayor of Dublin, Councillor Mary Freehill, said she is "delighted" with the plauqe.

“It's an important occasion to commemorate; that time back in the 1960’s this was such an exciting event and a breakthrough in music", she said.
