Hi all!

This edition is much too late again, but luckily a LITTLE earlier than in some weeks! I hope you enjoy it nevertheless and find lots of free events that interest you!

It will be an interesting weekend after the election, it could (and probably will) change the political landscape and the power distribution in the Dail completely. We will find out a lot of details during the day on Saturday, but – depending on the number of re-counts required – the final results will only be clear early next week.

The free events are continuing as if nothing has happened. At least for now! But there often are medium to long term effects from a change in the government configuration, because money will get distributed differently or budget cuts will happen. Unfortunately it is extremely rare that culture and arts will get a significant additional amount of money.

Speaking of money (and I really don’t like doing it, but there is no avoiding!): For February we are currently 20 Euro short and Tuesday is already 01 March. In March money for the next EUR 190 bill has to be collected, so if you can, please help with a donation. Any amount is appreciated, but if you are looking for a guideline, then consider EUR 12 as explained in the next paragraph.

This is my weekly appeal, but in some weeks I need to stress it more (see paragraph above) than in other weeks: Please don’t forget that there are two areas the Dublin Event Guide needs your continued help with every week: Your donations help paying the bills for sending the Dublin Event Guide every week, so please help if you can. Just 1 Euro per month (12 Euro per year) would be great. Unfortunately not many subscribers are prepared to or able to help, so please don’t rely on others!

And secondly: without you spreading the word we would have never reached 24,000 subscribers and 60,000 Facebook Likes. But it is just the start!! The goals are MUCH bigger than that! :-) Imagine if everyone just got ONE additional person to subscribe to the Dublin Event Guide (for Free Events). That would be an immediate increase by a few thousand subscribers. Can you help?

For donations go to www.perfectresults.info/donate.htm and the link to subscribe is www.dublineventguide.com.

————————–

Here is the explanation regarding donations: To send the Dublin Event Guide and for domain names and for web hosting, I have a monthly bill of EUR 190 to cover. This is not for me, but all that money goes directly to external service providers. I am working approx. 35 hours on the Dublin Event Guide every week and don’t make any cent, that’s why I ask you to help with the cost if you can. If you can spare EUR 1 per month (that’s just 25 cent per edition!!) please donate EUR 12 for the year (or more if you can …or even less if you can’t). You can make your donation at www.perfectresults.info/donate.htm using Paypal or CreditCard or send me a mail dublineventguide@gmail.com and I can suggest other ways. I am also looking for some corporate sponsors, if you know someone, send them my way. :-)

And please help spreading the word about the Dublin Event Guide (for Free Events). Your friends can easily subscribe at www.dublineventguide.com and they will get a weekly e-mail magazine with all the free events in Dublin if they subscribe. They don’t have to pay a cent (but donations are very welcome!) for that and their e-mail address is completely safe with me! More than 24,000 people receive the Dublin Event Guide every week and we are more than 60,000 people at the Dublin Event Guide Facebook Page at www.facebook.com/DublinEventGuide Check it out and click on LIKE when you are there.

And this is a great opportunity to help the Dublin Event Guide for absolutely no cost to you:

Without putting your hand in your pocket (for the Dublin Event Guide) at all you can help by ALWAYS using the ad links in the Dublin News Section and the ads in the Dublin Event Guides when you buy/order goods. If you buy goods immediately (in the same session) after clicking on a link/ad that you find in this e-zine/newsletter (Groupon, LivingSocial, Amazon, Book Depository, LastMinute etc), you help the Dublin Event Guide everytime. This is how it works: The company you buy from (Groupon, Amazon, LivingSocial, Book Depository etc) registers that you came to them via a link from the Dublin Event Guide and they show their appreciation by giving a small commission (5-8%) to the Dublin Event Guide. This might only be 30 cent a go, but if you did that for all online purchases and if lots of people used it, then it could make a big dent into the EUR 190 needed. Use these links as often as possible it doesn’t cost you a cent and you help big time!

Have an event-full weekend and week,

–Joerg

Feel good slot

The “Feel Good Slot” at this place in the Dublin Event Guide is to share some inspirational, motivational or thought provoking quotes, stories or video clips. You wonder why I added this section to this e-mail magazine? If your week was great, you might not need it, but most of us had some challenging moments in the last week and there could be more in the coming week and this section is for the people that want to overcome the hurdles, achieve more and remember that despite all, life is great!

Today’s Feel Good Slot brings you a quote again and it is possible that I used that at some stage before in this section. It is an iconic quote by the Dalai Lama and I don’t think hearing it a second time will do any harm. ;-)

He said:

Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible.

This part is important to “keep the show on the road”:

To cover the cost for the Dublin Event Guide I need your help and every week generous and nice Dublin Event Guide readers help with a donation.

Last week only Pascale N was so wonderful to support the Dublin Event Guide with a donation. Thanks a lot! Please keep in mind that without donations there won’t be a Dublin Event Guide (for Free Events): Your donation will ensure that the Dublin Event Guide will continue arriving in your Inbox every week and every donation will benefit EVERY Dublin Event Guide reader!

The cost for sending the weekly newsletter is approx. EUR 190 per month and a donation from you of just EUR 12 per year will ensure that I will be able to pay the bills.
Has the Dublin Event Guide helped you to find events that you otherwise wouldn’t have known about, or have you saved money by finding great free events? Then please go to here and give something back if you can!

I appreciate ANY help: EUR 12 would be great (that’s just 25 cent per week!), but even if it is just the price of 2 pints it will help.

You can donate online by following this link to the PayPal&CreditCard donation page. If you want to transfer your donation directly to my account, just send a mail to dublineventguide@gmail.com and I will send you the details.

EventbriteThe main sponsor is Eventbrite and their support is hugely appreciated! Eventbrite enables people all over the world to plan, promote, and sell out any event, and has sold over 200 million tickets and registrations worldwide, totalling more than $3 billion in gross ticket sales. Eventbrite is free for free events. The online event registration service makes it easy for everyone to discover events, and to share the events they are attending with the people they know. In this way, Eventbrite brings communities together by encouraging people to connect through live experiences.

All events listed in this Event Guide are free of any admission charges (or at least appear to be free) unless otherwise stated. I try to find confirmation in all cases and do my best to double-check the information. However errors can happen and therefore no promise for correctness can be given.

Joergs Picks

This section is intended to provide some help in picking and choosing from the huge number of events by sharing with you what I will/might or would do. This is not a “best of…” list and if an event is not listed here, it by no means implies that the event is not interesting. Instead my “picks” are just based on my personal preferences. All events mentioned here are described in detail further down.

This weekend the 1916 drill re-enactment on Saturday afternoon looks interesting (in Collins Barracks). On Sunday the Dublin Flea Market is back again and on Tuesday the Green Drinks Dublin will talk about Dublin Foxes (FOUR legged!!) and then it is time for another First Wednesday! 200 more events should fill the gaps inbetween! :-)

Competitions

The Dvide – Play – Ticket Competition

Mon 29 February – Sat 05 March – 20:00
Sean O’Casey Theatre, St. Mary’s Road, East Wall, Dublin 3

The New Form Theatre Company will perform The Divide from 29 February. “The Divide” is a romantic tragedy comedy that covers taboos within Western society. It shows a deeply religious devote Muslim woman torn from ambition and love for someone who is the forbidden fruit whilst at the same time showing the all too hidden human side of the elder lover.

The Preview for the play will be on Monday 29 Feb at 20:00 (EUR 10 for all tickets) and the official run is from Tuesday 01 March until Saturday 05 March. Performances are at 20:00 with an extra performance on Sat 05 March at 14:00. Tickets are EUR 15/10 and can be booked with the theatre by ringing 01-850 9000 or 089 966 9489. Alternatively you can buy tickets online via this Eventbrite page.

The organisers have given me 3 pairs of tickets for the 29 February for a competiton and the winners are Orlaigh Murphy, Bernie Whelan and Rachel Cox. Congratulations!!

Promote your product or event through a competition!

If you want to reach more than 24,000 people with a product promotion or an event promotion for a non-free event, contact me on dublineventguide@gmail.com and we can discuss the options. You provide the prize for the competition and the Dublin Event Guide (for Free Events) runs the competition for you. It couldn’t be simpler.

And if you want me to use/test a product you are selling and then share my assessment here in the Dublin Event Guide, we can talk about that too. I like testing gear. ;-)

Dublin news

Help the Dublin Event Guide! It won’t cost you a cent!

Do you enjoy free events? Does it help you to find out about all these free events simply in one e-mail magazine or on one website? Does the Dublin Event Guide (for Free Events) deliver all this for you and maybe even more? In that case, you probably also would want it to continue forever, right?

To achieve that some money is needed. Donations are a great help, but not everyone feels they can donate at the moment. So here is the solution: If you could help with a donation without having to pay a cent from your own money wouldn’t that be cool? You can!!

When you buy books online, buy them from Book Depository or from Amazon and use these links to go to the website:

Book Depository
Amazon

And when you buy from Living Social or Groupon use these links:

Groupon
LivingSocial

When you buy holidays (from Lastminute.com, Expedia or Hotels.com) or other products buy them via clicking on the links below:

HMV | | Vodafone |
Expedia
| Lastminute.com | Hotels.com

When you click on the link and then buy, your books/products/holidays etc cost exactly the same as if you went to the website directly. But if you go via the links above, the Dublin Event Guide (for Free Events) will get 5-8% of what you spend as a commission. That’s not a lot, but if you and lots of other people used that link every time, it would amount to a fair amount of crucially important money. Use the links often, actually EVERY time you buy from the relevant site, not just once!

Giving money for free! That’s how easy it is. ;-) THANK YOU!!!

And if you want to donate money directly, then you can do that here: www.perfectresults.info/donation.htm

National Childrens’ Science Centre for Dublin

After many many years of discussions and quite a number of different ideas that never materialised, the National Children’s Science Centre “Exploration Station” has moved a big step closer to becoming reality. Let’s hope it will happen this time! The charitable trust “Irish Children’s Museum” is working on this for more than 17 years and a science museum (with a permanent exhibition) is really missing in Dublin. The wonderful Science Gallery with its four yearly temporary exhibitions is quite different, despite the fact that it also targets a similar age group.

If the planning permission that was now submitted by the OPW will be granted, then the new Exploration Station will take over the (currently empty) North Wing of the National Concert Hall and will add a big building with planetarium in Iveagh Gardens. The work on the National Concert Hall part will be funded by the state, but for the new build another EUR 13 mio have to be raised through philanthropic donations, foundations and corporations.

IF planning permission is granted and IF the money can be raised and IF everything else goes according to plan, the new museum will open at the end of 2018.

It is a great development in a quite good location. As I said, I hope we won’t get disappointed this time, but it is definitely not yet all done and dusted, a lot of hurdles and hiccups can still endanger the project. I haven’t seen any plans yet, but I hope the impact on the wonderful Iveagh Park will only be small, on the other hand, space is limited in the City Centre for any new development of that sort and maybe we have to sacrifice a bit of the park for the cultural and touristic improvement such a museum will bring to Dublin.

ALERTS: Cancer causing Irish Tap Water and Johnson’s Baby Powder and Beer

During the week, three new cancer warnings emerged:

The most important one was about Irish tap water: The environmental pollutant Trihalomethane, which is cancer-causing, has been found in Irish tap water in excessive amounts. It gets into the drinking water as a result of a reaction between organic materials (e.g. peaty soil) and chlorine, which is added by Irish Water as a disinfectant. 400,000 people in Ireland might be affected and environmental activist Erin Brockovich (her true story was the background to the film from 2000, called “Erin Brockovich” with Julia Roberts) has warned that this puts especially pregnant women in danger.

The second one was about Johnson’s Baby Powder and came from a court case that determined that Johnson & Johnson knew since the 1980s that their talc-based baby powder carries a cancer risk. A woman who used it for many decades died of ovarian cancer and her illness was linked to the Baby Powder. There are over 1000 more cases filed in Missouri, USA and New Jersey, USA.

And in Germany (it hasn’t made it into the News in Ireland yet!) it was found that Glyphosat, a Monsanto-manufactured pesticide that is suspected to cause cancer, was in 14 of the most popular beer brands in Germany. For drinking water the max glyphosat limit is 0.1 microgramme, but oddly there is no limit for beer. The lowest amount found in beer was 0.46 microgramme and the highest amount was a huge 29.74 microgramme per litre. All German media outlets (in German) have reported extensively about it and the question is regularly thrown up if it is really cancer causing or not. An English language article is here. The full results of the Umweltinstitut Munich measurements are here (in German only). Since the same Monsanto-produced pesticides (e.g. Roundup) are used in Ireland and other countries, there is a high likelihood that similar results would be found in beers here.

At the moment, nobody can tell you for certain if any of these chemicals would or will affect you or others negatively, but as long as you are aware of the possible problem, you can decide how relevant the information is for you.

More dog-friendliness!

Since the MVP Pub in 29 Upper Clanbrassil Street was first forbidden to let dogs anymore and they then announced a few days later that they will ignore this (at least for now) and will let you and your four-legged friends back in again, the focus was put on dog-friendly establishments.

And it turns out that there is another place, a Café that is also in Clanbrassil Street, that will let dogs in. In this case, the dog-friendliness is even expressed in the name. The Café is called “Pupp” and is in 37 Lower Clanbrassil Street. Interesting that they are both in the same street! But it is great and I’d say if the two will be able to resist and HSE issues, there will be many more that will loosen their “No dogs!” policy.

People that have dog phobias or allergies might not be too happy and we also have not yet heard if dogs were asked for their opinion about this new trend, but in the spirit of inclusion, the cross-species-tolerance has to be welcomed. ;-)

Opportunities

The former “Opportunities” section is now Eventbrite’s section to give recommendations, tips & tricks on how to organise and run good events. Eventbrite is the main sponsor of the Dublin Event Guide (for Free Events) and their support is very much appreciated! All information in this section is supplied by Eventbrite.

== EVENTBRITE RECOMMENDS ==

In the next few weeks this section will be filled with information and help from Eventbrite that focuses on organisers of events. So if you are an event organiser for big or small events, watch this space!

And you can find lots of events at www.eventbrite.ie … or download the Eventbrite app to find events around you.

Exhibitions

Based on your feedback, I have decided to do the following with the Exhibition section in this newsletter from now on: I will provide you with a link to a near-comprehensive listing of exhibitions provided by www.visualartists.ie . For me to list all exhibitions would only be doubling their good work and would be an inefficient use of my resources. The link is www.visualartists.ie/category/listings/dublin/

On top of that I will every now and then include here a small selection of exhibitions that either are not mentioned in the Visual Artist listing or are note-worthy to be mentioned separately.

Little Stories, Little Prints – Exhibition

see below

Libraries in Dublin

Kildare to create ‘little prints’ on ‘little known events or incidents’ during or around the time of the 1916 Rising and the exhibition will tour the Dublin Libraries in 2016.

Each library displaying the exhibition will host a workshop in basic printmaking. Participants will be invited to illustrate an incident/artefact of their choice. A small selection of the resulting work may be added to the website and may be included in the display in the library. Please check with the library for date and time of their respective workshop.

The schedule for 2016 is

First Wednesday – Free Entrance to OPW Heritage Sites

09:00, Wed 02 Mar

Various OPW locations in Dublin

Entry charges at nearly all OPW-managed Heritage sites in Ireland are waived once a month. The Office of Public Works (OPW) wants to encourage people to visit the historic sites that it manages and has therfore started this initiative in 2011.

Most OPW owned sites can already be visited for free, but the sites that normally charge a fee will be free every first Wednesday as well. In the (extended) Greater Dublin Area this means you can visit the following sites for free:
+ The Casino, Marino (closed from 01 Nov-13 March)
+ Dublin Castle, State Apartments
+ Kilmainham Gaol
+ Brú na Bóinne Visitor Centre at Newgrange
+ Glendalough Visitor Centre in Wicklow
+ Rathfarnham Castle

As you can imagine, this event is very popular and therfore it is strongly recommended to arrive early at the venues. Once the day’s tickets are given out, you will not get access anymore to Kilmainham Gaol, Newgrange and Rathfarnham Castle. Dublin Castle has continual access for self-guided tours.

The International Bar, 23 Wicklow Street, Dublin 2

Every Tuesday and Thursday the International Bar invites to a Jazz night in the Lounge.

Groups led by Cote Calmet, Sean Maynard Smith, Dominic Mullan, Paddy Groenland, Georgia Cusack & Alex Mathias are performing regularly with occasional guest players, but there are also other bands from all over.

Admission is free, with a suggested donation of EUR 5. The website clearly says that there is no entry fee, but – and that makes a lot of sense – that your donations are very much appreciated (Musicians need to pay for rent and food too!) Be generous after the gig if you liked it, but if someone wants to charge an admission charge, please point out that the “rules” as described on their website are like I have explained.

This is odd

Please note: This section contains observations taken from the world I live in that strike me as odd. I express my personal opinion and you might not share it. ;-) If you are easily offended by opinions that are not identical with your own, please don’t read this section and I am VERY serious about that!

Fianna Fail vs Fine Gael – No real difference, but big enemies!

The election is over and at the time of writing this, the polling stations are just about to close so I have no idea yet, what the outcome of the election will be. BUT, we all have certain expectations and these expectations are usually influenced by the media reporting in the last few days and weeks.

Most commentators expect the outcome to be a “hung” Dail. Hanging in this case is nothing bad or negative and it is a strong word for the situation that means nothing else that not one party or one previous coalition has a clear majority. Big deal! Just find new alliances and form a new coalition. Yes, that’s what most would think, but in Ireland things work a little different, because for some odd reason the two parties that ALWAYS have been the biggest parties in the Dail, really don’t get on with each other.

Substantial difference of opinion? Different ideologies? Not at all! And that is the oddest thing about it! Fianna Fail and Fine Gael really have largely the same opinions about society, economy, justice and nearly all other areas of politics. Yes, there are some differences, but they are really quite small and sometimes you feel they disagree just to pretend that they have separate identities.

So, why do two parties that have the same opinions not work together? Looking at this situation from the outside (or as a foreigner) really doesn’t show any reason for their opposition to each other. But if you ask that question in Ireland, most informed people will have an immediate answer and they will tell you that it goes back to the Irish Civil War.

WHAT? So, the separation of these near-twins goes back more than 90 years and they still haven’t realised (or are struggling with the realisation) that they are more alike than different? Any coalition, Fianna Fail with the Greens in the previous Dail and Fine Gael with Labour in the just finishing Dail period HAS to be much more of a challenge than a coalition between Fianna Fail and Fine Gael. Do they not realise that?

Seemingly they don’t! And so it could happen that if there will indeed be a “hung” Dail we will have sooner a re-election than a cooperation between these two oh so similar parties.

(BTW: I am no suggesting that either of them or a coalition of the two is the best solution for Ireland. They both have not convinced in their periods of governing the country and with that in mind, putting two bad apples together wouldn’t create a yummy peach, it just would probably cause a bigger rotten fruit. The above article is more a reflection on the astonishing fact that they feel they can’t work together, 90 years after their disagreement. Imagine if that idiotic stubbornness was still in place in Northern Ireland! They would still kill each other!)

Have an event-full weekend and week,
