Dublin Event Guide (for Free Events) No. 607
Dear Dublin Event Guide Follower!!
Remember when I said that I will retire the weekly Dublin Event Guide and only send one when there are significant events? Well, I started sending a weekly newsletter out again and that wasn’t the plan. ;-) But I also did something after the retirement in December of last year: In order to be able to continue the “occasional” sending of a Dublin Event Guide without having to beg for donations anymore, I had to downgrade the e-mail sending plan I was on. On the new plan I can send only four e-mails per month. I already have sent four e-mails and the contract renewal date is tomorrow, so I can’t send a mail this week! :-O Sorry, I hope you understand!
I will still post the events list (albeit a somewhat shorter one) on Facebook and on the Dublin Event Guide Page, but there won’t be an e-mail this week!
For all new subscribers, this is the simplified (new) Dublin Event Guide (for Free Events). It is a long list with event headlines and then links so that you can check out the details yourself. I hope it works for you. And if you can help the Dublin Event Guide with this super simple “trick” that costs you nothing, I would really appreciate it:
Just go to www.DublinEventGuide.com and click on the ad banner that is at the very top of the page! If you don’t see an ad banner there, please turn your Ad Blocker off and refresh the page and then do the clicking. ;-) It is just a few cents that I will get, but if enough people click on it, it might do the job to cover the cost for sending the Dublin Event Guide.
All events are sorted by start time, but watch out for the few events that have a “++” in front of them, the are particularly recommended. ;-)
