Segment 1: Dublin Maker 2016

On the 23rd of July, Dublin Maker held their 5th event in Merrion square. Its a day long event showcasing creations from around ireland. Their is a strong focus on being able to build it yourself. Not just admire from a distance. So what kind of things were on show? I had a look around and talked to some stall makers to give you a favour of what was there.
