Video: Cracking views of Dublin from above as Irish defence forces parachute into the heart of the city

If you live in Dublin, try and pick out your house if you can.

Days when conditions are good enough to perform a parachute jump are at a premium in Ireland, so you have to make the most of your opportunities while you can.

The parachute display team from the Irish Defence Forces, 'The Black Knights', did just that today, embarking from an Air Corps EW135 helicopter and landing on the square in Cathal Brugha Barracks in Rathmines.

As well as some cracking GoPro footage, they also captured some lovely views of the city in decent weather before they left the chopper and on their way to the ground too.

If you want a proper view of our capital city, that's the way to do it... if you're brave enough, of course.
