The Irish Air Corps do great work on behalf of the country and the latest set of images they have shared on their Facebook page capture Dublin in a way that you just couldn't imagine from the ground. We previously shared 8 gorgeous images they had posted but the air corps were up in the sky again this bank holiday weekend in a mixture of sun and rain. Here are 8 of the best shots they shared..

Phoenix Park

We've all probably driven past the point that marks the Pope's visit to these shores in 1979 hundreds of times but this is the first time I've seen it properly from the air. Screen Shot 2014-06-03 at 14.43.07

Bustling Port

We often forget just how much goes on down in Dublin port and what an important part it plays in out city but this image gives you a good overview of all the goods being shipped in and out on any given day. Screen Shot 2014-06-03 at 14.43.30

Dun Laoghaire Pier

Most people spent their weekend walking along the pier eating an ice cream without a care in the world. What this picture shows is the huge job it does protecting those tiny little yachts from the wild sea on the other side. Screen Shot 2014-06-03 at 14.44.39

City Of Bridges

The Liffey really does cut it's way through the city and it is only from the air that you appreciate just how important all the bridges are for people crossing it. Notice the newest bridge of the lot featuring as well. Screen Shot 2014-06-03 at 14.44.19
