Countdown of to abseil century.

Byline: MAEVE QUIGLEY

THEY say time flies when you're having fun - and that was certainly true for these daredevils yesterday.

Abseilers used bikes and kayaks to fly off the town clock for the launch of the Westport Get Out There Adventure Festival which will run from August 19 to 22.

A spokeswoman said: "The unique free festival turns the whole town into a series of adventure points, each featuring a different sport or activity, with a host of entertainment.

"It includes activities for families, children, teens, couples and friends of all ages, both with and without experience. It's all about trying something new."
