This is the final version!
Just a quick explanation about what went wrong this week: I was away on holidays until Thursday evening, then I started working and I normally work through the night, but this time I was not able to keep my eyes open and wasted hours fighting against the sleep. Result: Sleep 1 – Joerg 0. Friday night was not much better.
Finally, on Saturday I posted the web version at around 11:00 and also the smart phone version but I still had a whole list of events to go through. Then my database system crashed and it looked as if I had lost everything, but some work and some luck and I recovered most. But with all this it meant that the final version was only posted and then sent by e-mail to everyone after 18:00. A total write off, for the key day Saturday. I know and I apologise! I am very frustrated about it, but wasn’t able to do any better. Better next week? I really hope so!

Thanks for your understanding, but if you feel that you can’t take it any longer, then I can’t blame you! Go to the very bottom of the mail and you will find an Unsubscribe link there. It will be a pity to see you leave, especially since this is the Dublin Event Guide Birthday edition today, but I can’t blame you!

Hi all!

After the great news of an early arrival of the Dublin Event Guide in your Inbox, this week is the opposite! I was hoping that it would be with you much earlier because this week is the 8th Birthday of the Dublin Event Guide (for Free Events), but I only came back from holidays late on Thursday night and must have too good a holiday: I couldn’t keep my eyes open while working through the two nights. :-(

Read more about the 8th birthday in the Dublin News and have a great weekend and following week!

As always I need your help. It the same as every week, but it is really really important:

There are two areas the Dublin Event Guide needs your help with: 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. Not very many subscribers are prepared to or able to help, so please don’t rely on others! Last week, for example, not a single person did give any donation. :-(

And without you spreading the word we would have never reached 23,000 subscribers and 58,000 Facebook Likes. But it is just the start!! The goal is 50,000 subscribers and 100,000 Facebook Likes! Big goals, I know, but I believe we can achieve it! 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. Would be super!!!! Can you help?

For donations go to www.perfectresults.info/donate.htm and the link to subscribe is here: 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 as well, 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 23,000 people receive the Dublin Event Guide every week and we are more than 58,000 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 great video clip. It is entitled “Live your Dream & Master Life”. The pictures suggest that it is a motiviational video for sport/training. But the words apply to ALL situations in life! Spend the 7 minutes and be inspired: youtu.be/9o6F_cRW5W0

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 Phillipa C and Ryan M were the wonderful people supporting 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 go to here and give something back!

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 week is a bit quieter again after last week’s bank holiday and the events of the June Bank Holiday weekend. This Saturday, the IMMA Summer Rising event is looking very interesting and there is the historical re-enactment of the World War II events in Collins Barracks and Mythfest still continues. Next weekend will be youbloom 2015, a music festival in the Dame District, that you should keep an eye on!

Competitions

Obeo Food Waste Box Competition – Get into the recycling habit this summer

Fed up with your smelly brown bin? Then this invention might just be what you need.

The Obeo food waste box is the cleanest, easiest way to deal with food waste. It’s a compostable little box you keep on the kitchen counter, fill up over a few days then throw into the brown bin when full and simply start again with a fresh one. It’s water-resistant so it can cope with any wet or sticky food waste you throw in it. So wave bye bye to bin juice. And the great thing is there’s absolutely no smell.

Using your brown bin can save you money on waste charges AND it will help the environment. So if you haven’t started using it yet let Obeo look after the downsides of the brown bin.

Obeo are giving Dublin Event Guide readers the chance to win a 6 month supply of their food waste boxes (worth EUR 40) so that should keep you recycling well past the smelly bin season. Just send an email to dublineventguide@gmail.com with OBEO in the subject line and your name, phone number and address in the body of the email so we can post the prize to you. And also go to www.facebook.com/WeAreObeo and LIKE them to be kept up to date with more competitions. Your mail has to be with me by 10 June at 12:00.

In addition Obeo is offering Dublin Event Guide readers a special discount on their online shop www.weareobeo.com/obeo-shop. Just enter the code dubevent15 to get up to 25% off Obeo.

And for anyone going to Bloom this weekend stop by the Obeo stand at G29A in the Grand Pavilion and mention the Dublin Event Guide to get a free sample.

Promote your product or event through a competition!

If you want to reach more than 23,000 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 out gear. ;-) [Currently I am looking to buy a high spec Android mobile phone and an action camera and would happily “test drive” some candidates.]

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 | Pixmania
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

8th Birthday for the Dublin Event Guide (for Free Events)

In early June of 2007, I sent the first e-mail entitled “Dublin Event Guide” to about 10 friends. It came as a result of having been at a number of really good events that were poorly frequented and subsequently finding out that my friends hadn’t heard about these events.

Today, I can report that at 416 issues (and having never missed a week in all this time), this week is the 8th anniversary of the Dublin Event Guide (for Free Events). This week’s edition will reach more than 23,500 subscribers and we have more than 58,000 Facebook Likes and more than 11,000 users of the smart phone app.

The Dublin Event Guide (for Free Events) is still a one-man band, and I have to admit that this one man is a little proud today on having reached this goal, considering that this was never planned initially! ;-)

Thanks for all your support because this publication would not exist without you, your support (financially and otherwise) and for your help in spreading the word all the time!

If you would like to give a birthday present, I will not say NO! ;-) But I am not looking for birthday presents for myself, just for donations that will be used for covering the cost of the Dublin Event Guide: www.perfectresults.info/donation.htm Thanks!

Yes, not all is glorious and good: The publishing times of this weekly online magazine suck lately (I can’t say it any nicer!) and maybe it is time to re-think some of the parameters that were unmoved in the last 8 years. I will keep you posted!

Thanks for all your help!

–Joerg

Parnell Square redevelopment for 60mio

Dublin’s new cultural quarter will be around Parnell Square when the total refurbishment of that area is completed in (or after) 2019. It will cost at least 60mio and will provide a brand new home for the Central Library, a 200 seat auditorium, a new civic plaza and a new park. Councillors will decide on Monday, but after everything is confirmed on the planning side, it is expected that all will be approved.

The Irish Times reports here.

Running a company or planning to start one? Read this!

If you are running a small company or are planning to start one then you have to look into all the changes the new Company Act brought with it that has replaced the old laws on 01 June.

Many current business owners are already at least partially aware of some or all changes, but for some smaller companies, the focus might be on acquiring customers and these law changes are further down the priority list, but don’t forget about it, because it does affect you!

For people that plan to start a new company soon, make sure that you read up on all the changes. Most of the new rules simplify the setting up even more than before, but you need to learn a good bit new if you had looked into it before June.

There are many resources like the ones below around and you will find them when you search on Google for “New Companies Act Ireland”, but the new act has more than 1100 pages so it is some monster piece of law.

Some help to understand the changes can be found here:

New weekly Dublin Online Newspaper: Dublin Inquirer

A new weekly online newspaper was launched. It is called “Dublin Inquirer” and will be published every Wednesday.

We need to wait and see how it will be different from the big newspapers and their online offerings, but the weekly publication and the non-internationality regarding the news reports already indicates that it might more compete with the freesheets from the “DublinPeople” Group (i.e. Southside People and Northside People, etc) and with the Gazette Group and not with the Irish Times or Irish Independent etc and also not with Waterford Whispers and Broadsheet.

Only time will tell if the Dublin Inquirer can find a niche that will ensure its survivability. I read somewhere that they might plan to issue a printed version at some stage in the future, but – as we know – that has killed other and more established newspapers.

You find the Dublin Inquirer here: www.dublininquirer.com

Opportunities

The former “Opportunities” section is now Eventbrite’s section to highlight some of the events they – as the main sponsor of the Dublin Event Guide (for Free Events) – would particularly like to bring to your attention. Many events listed here will be free, but there will be a non-free event in the list as well and they will be marked as non-free. All information is supplied by Eventbrite.

== EVENTBRITE PICKS ==

The Eventbrite Picks will be back again next week.

And in the meantime you can find more 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.

HOME\SICK is the summer exhibition of the Science Gallery, which usually is the exhibition that is the most accessible and understandable for all ages and that goal was achieved again. It is not the Science Gallery’s best exhibition, but it is still definitely worth a visit.

The exhibition will run from 01 May until 19 July and is open from Tuesday-Sunday (Tues-Fri: 12:00-20:00, Sat+Sun 12:00-18:00). Admission is free.

Irish Museum of Modern Art, Royal Hospital Kilmainham, Dublin 8

If you have or know kids aged 12-15 or 15-18 that might be interested in arts, read about the IMMA workshops here:

As part of the Summer Rising Festival, the Irish Museum of Modern Art will run two 3-day long workshops for teens. They both run from Tuesday 09 June until 11 June. The 12-15 year olds have theirs at 11:00-13:00 and the older group has the timeslot 14:00-16:00.

The participants will meet artists, explore exhibitions, discuss ideas, and make artworks in the studios: join artist Janine Davidson for an exciting 3-day workshop inspired by the artist Stan Douglas. This workshop will explore history and narrative with analogue and digital technologies, and create with daily outputs to be shared on social media.

“Inspired by Stan Douglas’s play Helen Lawrence (2014) we will make a stage set, with the use of overhead projectors, transparencies, props and perhaps their own bodies. This will set a scene from which we will develop multiple narratives. The narrative will be inspired by the architecture and grounds of the museum. It will also be informed by the IMMA Collection Show Fragments and the current Heritage exhibition which explores the history of the building to the present day. Combining elements from the Past, Present and Future, each person will create a fragment of the story. Our daily events we will be published through social media the aim is to question the traditional model of storytelling, of a beginning middle and end, instead offering variable and diverse outcomes.”

TASC, 14 Parliament Street, Dublin 2

Ireland’s newly-appointed Head of Lobbying Regulation Ms Sherry Perreault will deliver a special lunchtime lecture at the launch of TASC’s new Toolkit to Open Government.

Sherry Perreault will give a talk on the new online registration system for lobbying, which follows the recent enactment of the Regulation of Lobbying Act 2015.

The new system is designed to provide information to the public about who is lobbying whom about what. It is a key element of a series of legal reforms by the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform which are designed to open government decisions up to fuller public scrutiny.

Before her talk, Sherry Perreault will formally launch TASC’s new Toolkit to Open Government. This is a set of practical guides that aim to help citizens and organisations to more effectively seek official information, understand and query public decision-making, and promote alternatives.

TASC is the Think-tank Action in Social Change. And these lunchtime lectures are intended to be given while you have your own lunch that you bring to the lecture. Tea and Coffee will be available.

Admission is free, but registration via the website below is required.

Temple Bar Night Market

15:00 – 20:00, Wed 10 Jun

Temple Bar Square, Temple Bar, Dublin 2

I totally missed the start and I wonder if you did too. Maybe this year the “Temple Bar Night Market” wasn’t advertised that well? Or did I just not see it?

The market struggles a little with being more an afternoon and evening market. From 15:00-20:00 is not really delivering on the name! And in previous years the missing food and drink stalls at the market (probably to protect the pubs and restaurants in Temple Bar) was mentioned by visitors as a limit to the attractiveness of the market.

Until 19 August there will be a Temple Bar AFTERNOON and EVENING Market (let’s not call it a Night Market!! :-) ) every Wednesday with art and crafts.

Social Housing Conditions in Ireland

13:00 – 14:00, Thu 11 Jun

George’s Hill Chapel, Halston Street, Smithfield, Dublin 7

Focus Ireland and the School of Social Work & Social Policy (Trinity College Dublin) invite you to a lunchtime talk with Cecilia Forrestal (Community Action Network) and Dr. Rory Hearne (NUI Maynooth). They will talk about “Collective Complaint on Social Housing Conditions in Ireland”.

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!

Have something to say? USE THE SUBJECT LINE!!

It is becoming a pet hate of mine and I can see that quite soon, I will just bin all mails without anything in the subject line.

I get hundreds of mails per day and it takes a significant amount of time to check all mails. The easier the sender makes it for me to understand in what category that mail belongs, the faster I can sort and get through the mails, but lately I seem to get more and more mails where the sender has decided that giving me an early idea of what the mail is about, is just too much hassle for him/her. If the sender doesn’t care, why would I? In the words of famous Sweet Brown: Ain’t nobody got time for this! ;-) (www.youtube.com/watch?v=waEC-8GFTP4)

The inventors of written communication decided that headlines are a great way to introduce a topic to the reader because it summarises what he/she will find in the remaining text and headlines still make a LOT of sense.

So if you have something to say AND you want to be heard, then park your laziness or subject-line-rebellism for a moment and spend the 5 seconds of putting something in the subject line of your e-mails. If you don’t do that, I just have to assume that your mail can’t be worth much, after all you didn’t even put any effort in convincing me that I should read it.

NO problem about any random mail, but if someone wants me to help them promote their event, you would expect that they want to help me to want to help them, if you get my drift? Odd!

Have an event-full weekend and week,
