Galway City Council have closed a popular water-side spot due to large crowds of people gathering there in recent days.

The closure of Middle Arch, between Wolfe Tone Bridge and Claddagh Quay in the city was announced at the request of Gardaí.

The Council confirmed the closure on Saturday morning, tweeting it would remain in place "for a number of weeks".
