The weather in Ireland, as you may know, is bad - really, really bad. But the rain and the muck didn't dampen the enthusiasm of the thousands who descended on the annual Oxegen music festival last weekend at Punchestown racecourse in Co. Kildare.

The rain made the place more like a mosh pit than a concert, but fans nonetheless enjoyed music from the diverse likes of Snow Patrol, the Wu Tang Clan and Pete Doherty, Kate Moss's drug addled boyfriend.
