Hi all!

Yes, the Dublin Event Guide is finished a little earlier today than most Saturdays. Not much, but every bit counts….I hope. I won’t waste much time on this intro today, but rather get the mail out to you. Maybe I have a bit more to tell next week. ;-)

Thanks to the ONE donation last week. I was hoping we would get a head start on the May bill, but the donations JUST brought us across the line for the April bill. So unfortunately the nagging will have to continue next week already because we are then just 1 day away from May.

And here is my weekly appeal: 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, more would be even better. Unfortunately not many subscribers are prepared to or able to help, so please don’t rely on others! Your money will be used to pay the monthly EUR 190 bill for sending the newsletter using MailChimp, for webhosting and domain names. I am happy to work 35 hours on the Dublin Event Guide every week without making anything from it, but for the bills I need your help. 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 here is the second area where you can help: Without you spreading the word we would have never reached 24,000 subscribers and 64,000 Facebook Likes. But it is just the start!! :-) 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? To get people to subscribe send them to www.dublineventguide.com.

————————–

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 is a video by Prince Ea (or Richard Williams in real life). Prince Ea is a rapper and YouTuber and he often has inspirational and uplifting or at least shoulder-grabbing and cage-rattling messages in his You Tube videos.

This video is called “Everybody Dies, but not everybody lives”

www.youtube.com/watch?v=ja-n5qUNRi8

Spend the 6 minutes on watching it and makes sure you can listen to the sound. And then think about what he says for another 4 minutes. It might be the best 10 minutes of your week if his message gives something to you.

Support

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 Roisin R 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 is the REAL anniversary of the Easter Rising 1916 and consequently there are a number of events taking place organised by political and union-related groupings. The GPO will see at least FOUR events in Sunday that all are not directly related. So O’Connell Street will be slightly mad, but with less culture and more protest than on Easter Monday, it seems.

Somewhat quieter but always interesting and worth a visit will be the Dublin Flea Market. I also like the sound of the Fingal 1916 Commemorations, even with a Fireworks Display.

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

Red 1916 Postboxes are interactive

I only realised that last week and in case you missed it as well, I want to tell you today about the Red interactive 1916 postboxes in Dublin! To promote the (unfortunately relatively expensive – EUR 10) GPO Witness History exhibition in the GPO,

An Post painted nine postboxes in Dublin red as they were in 1916. In addition the postboxes carry a keyword and if you send this keyword via Freetext to 50100, a link to a short video about 1916 events at this location will be sent to you.

The postbox locations are: Royal College of Surgeons, St Stephen’s Green; Grafton Street; Liberty Hall; Dun Laoghaire Pier; Mount Street; Haddington Road; Four Courts; O’Connell Street and Father Matthew Hall in Church Street.

The campaign will run until May.

Here are some of the keywords, so that you won’t have to go to all 9 postboxes: EDEN at Liberty Hall, STEPHENS at the Royal College of Surgeons, MOUNT at Mount Street. Send the keyword to 50100 and a message will be sent back to you.

Let us be counted – Census 2016

Sunday 24 April is the key date for the Census 2016. The statistical snapshot of the country will be taken on that evening, but don’t worry, the form won’t self-detect when you fill it in. It doesn’t HAVE to be on Sunday evening, just describe the situation as it was on Sunday evening.

The census form has a few other interesting aspects: Oddly, the statisticians want to know your name. This doesn’t make much sense, but we are assured that no cross-linking will be done with other databases in case you have something to hide. Some of the questions on the form seem a little outdated and that is because they were taken from the last census in 2011. Only one question got changed: The marital status question.

If you are not too sure how to fill in a certain section you can either ask the person who will collect your form OR you can make a “best effort attempt” in answering. So don’t panic, just do your best and answer what you think is right. A number of people have mentioned already and you might have read that elsewhere that the question about your religion is NOT a question about what your parents decided for you but how you feel today about it. So tick what religion you feel is yours TODAY, not how you were, for example, baptised.

There is one aspect about the census that I find quite nonsensical: If a member of your household is not in Ireland on Sunday night, then – according to census rules – that person has to sign a declaration that he/she was absent and where he/she was, but after that no details will be captured. I think the form should be filled in based on what NORMALLY is the case. So if “Jim” is in London for the weekend but lives in your household every other day of the year, in my opinion he should be listed as if he was here, It saves you the “absence declaration” and is more relevant for future planning based on the statistics than the fact that he was away for a weekend.

By the way, the Census phone number is 1850 201604 and in their ignorance, the Central Statistics Office claims that this is a “LoCall” number, implying that the cost for calling this number are lower than the cost for calling a geographical number, but this is – as we know – all incorrect since mobile plans with included minutes exist. Ringing 1890 and 1850 numbers is ALWAYS more expensive if you are on a plan with included minutes than ringing a 01 number. I wish companies informed themselves better!

Creative Space Block T & Irish Heart Foundation are looking for help

BLOCK T HAS A NEW HOME

Block T, the arts space that was based at Smithfield Plaza/Haymarket, had to leave their building at the end of March because the lease was not extended, but unlike other creative spaces (like Mabos, Moxie Studios and the Joinery), they luckily found a new home in Basin View, Dublin 8 and are currently refurbishing the place.

For all the refurbishment work and to move and restart the operation in the new place, they are looking for financial support and if you want to help their fundraising efforts, you can do so here.

IRISH HEART FOUNDATION NEEDS HELP ON HAPPY HEARTS DAY

The Irish Heart Foundation is looking for volunteers for their main fundraising event in Happy Hearts Day, which is on 05+06 May. Even if you just have 1 hour you can help! Sign up here.

Spring Into Heritage – Events Programme – Dun Laoghaire Rathdown

The “Spring into Heritage 2016” programme, is a series of free guided tours over the next 10 weeks from 21 March until 29 May in Dun Laoghaire Rathdown. It is a great programme that gives you a chance to learn more about the history of this part of greater Dublin. The National Maritime Museum, the Dalkey Castle & Heritage Centre and a 1916 Graves tour in Deansgrange Cemetery were added new this year and there are also tours of the Oratory on Library Road in Dun Laoghaire, Cabinteely House and Marlay House.

If you are interested in history/heritage, check it out! A brochure with the tours can be downloaded here.

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 ==

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.

Reflecting 1916

Sat 19 March – Sun 01 May

Gallery of Photography, Meeting House Square, Temple Bar, Dublin 2

Reflecting 1916 features photographs that were taken by eyewitnesses in 1916. Some of them were never shown in public before.

Admission is free. Opening hours are Sun+Mon 13:00-18:00, Tues-Sat 11:00-18:00.

1916 Sackville Street: Remembering 262 Civilians Through Art

Fri 08 – Sun 24 April

National Botanic Gardens, Botanic Road, Glasnevin, Dublin 9

There were more civilians killed in the 1916 Easter Rising than Irish Volunteers or British soldiers. Of the 485 people who died, 262 were civilians. These men, women and children have no memorial and lie in graves, some forgotten.

The objective of the 1916 Sackville Street Art Project is to hold an exhibition to commemorate the lives of these ordinary civilians that were killed in the 1916 Easter Rising. Schools, educational groups, youth groups and individuals were invited to create a 3D house from any art form to represent a civilian that was killed during the 1916 Rising, and where possible, to provide a brief historical profile of that civilian and/or the art project.

The response was overwhelming and resulted in this unique exhibition. The initiative was started by ceramic artist Ciara O’Keefe. www.1916sackvillestreet.com

FIELD TEST – Science Gallery Exhibition

12:00 – 18:00, Sat 23 Apr

Science Gallery, Pearse Street, TCD, Dublin 2

The exhibition “Field Test – Radical Adventures in Future Farming” (11 Mar – 05 Jun 2016) in the Science Gallery is exploring how farming will look like in the future and what new developments will change farming so that we can deal with the global food challenges.

From Farm Cyborgs (for example a Virtual Reality environment for chicken so that they can think they are free range), via odd, unique and forward looking foods (e.g. insects for improving your protein intake); growth houses for your home; very different seeds (e.g. beans that taste like beef) to the “LOCI Food Lab” (outside near the entrance to the Science Gallery) where you can get a customised snack, the exhibition has a lot of interesting exhibits that revealing, intriguing or surprising.

Like all Science Gallery exhibitions, FIELD TEST is suitable for all ages with a particular focus on the age group of 15-25, but I would say that chilren from 10 years of age can understand the whole exhibition if they get some additional explanations and there are even some exhibits that would work for younger children.

When you go to see the exhibition, get help from the Science Gallery mediators! They are helpers (usually students or graduates) that know the whole exhibition inside out and are very happy to help with a lot more information than the little labels at the exhibits can provide. Use their excellent service!

The Science Gallery has very visitor friendly opening hours of Tue-Fri 12:00-20:00 and Sat+Sun 12:00-18:00.

1916 Unfinished Business – Protest

14:00, Sun 24 Apr

GPO, O’Connell Street, Dublin 1

A grouping that calls itself “Call For a Revolution” is asking people to “revolt” at their “Unfinished Business” event on Sunday at the GPO (where else!). No other details are given as to what happens at the event.

Doesn’t sound too good or very “family-friendly”. Maybe it is just talk to drum up a crowd, but we have only their words to go by. Further down they talk about “peaceful assembly for days and nights” but to some “peaceful” and “revolt” might be contradicting. More clarity and a clearer identification of who or what is behind a protest event might help.

There are some hugely talented people among them and it is a great idea to meet up with others who have the same hobby. Find out on their website below or on their Facebook Page where they will meet and join them if you do some sketching/drawing yourself.

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!

Just ruin it for everybody! – Nonsensical Compensation Case

Ireland has a serious compensation problem and NOTHING is done about it. But hopefully shocking cases like this one will EVENTUALLY get a government to fix this stupid situation. But what happened?

A 59-year old woman (Teresa Wall from Swords) went for a hill walk on the Wicklow Way in August 2013. Because she wasn’t careful enough, she tripped and fell on her knee. It seemingly was a bad fall that required a few stitches, but nothing was broken and no long-term pain or damage has been reported. Similar situations have happened MANY times before and if you go hillwalking or mountain climbing or do any other rough-ish outdoor sport/exercise, you should know that you can get injured.

The Irish Independent reported here.

In this case, the woman was walking on a “board walk” that is made up of old railway sleepers. The board walk is there to protect the flora and fauna on the mountain, but also to help walkers get over boggy/marshy/wet stretches. The railway sleepers are made of wood and they suffer from the wet and wind and were “badly rotted”. Well, what would normal people do? Be EXTRA careful in the same way as you would be extra careful on bad ground. And if they fall? They get up again and sort out the damage, but they are NOT running to the courts!

Teresa Wall wanted money! She sued the National Parks and Wildlife Service and unfortunately she wasn’t told to get lost, but instead judge Jacqueline Linnane outrageously awarded her EUR 40,000….for a few stitches on the knee! Unbelievable!

The woman claimed that she walked “all around the world” for 40 years, that she ran half-marathons on a weekly basis and that she had climbed in the Himalayas to the base camp on Mount Everest. She also claimed that the injury meant that she now could no longer hill climb or run marathons.

What do you think mountain climbers get who get injured or even killed on Mount Everest? Do they sue Nepal? Or maybe the creator of the mountain? They sure won’t! And if something bad had happened on her climb in the Himalayas she wouldn’t have received a cent.

And what is the ridiculous amount of 40k for that judge Linnane so generously gave away of not-her-own-money?

Now, accidents and compensations happen all the time, but why is this one such a significant case? See, the result of it is that anybody else who gets a little scratch on a walk in the Wicklow Mountains or any other outdoor activity area in Ireland on private or public ground will be able to sue for the most ridiculous reasons. And for that reason we will see more “DO NOT ENTER” signs and wonderful walks like the Wicklow Way might be closed for the public.

The negative follow-on effect thanks to Teresa Wall and Jacqueline Linnane’s actions is not yet comprehensible, but will most likely be HUGE!!

This has to be changed! Crazy claims like this should be thrown out of court and even where compensation is paid, it should be based on a predetermined compensation “price list” as it is done already in many other countries to take this total randomness our of judges decisions.

An example for leg-related injuries from the German claims table is here. If you translate it with Google Translate or something similar or if you are able to read German, you will be able to see that the money paid for a light injury (dog bite with car to thigh fracture) is EUR 450-5900. For a middle severity injury which results in a severe disability and reduction in earning capability of 60% (That’s quite serious!!) is up to EUR 65,000, but that is FAR FAR worse than what happened on Wicklow Way.

Have an event-full weekend and week,
