Dublin Bowie Festival, First Fortnight Mental Health Festival, Polish Charity “WOSP” Final Event

 

Hi all!

It is all back to normality! The good memories are still there, but everyone is back to work. You hear “Happy New Year!” less and less frequently, some of the New Year Resolutions are already long forgotten and the next thing you will plan is probably the Summer Holidays. ;-)

The events list is still a little shorter than at other times of the year, but that’s the same every year and no reason to worry. I have put together a nice list for you again here and hope you will have a great weekend.

One thing that decreased faster than the “Happy New Year!” wishes is the people that help the Dublin Event Guide with your clicks every week.

Bills for Hosting, Internet Domains and for sending this newsletter every week arrive in my Inbox every month and to get the funds for that, I need your help. The great thing is that helping doesn’t cost you a cent, all I need is a couple of clicks or taps. :-)

This is how the support works and it is really super easy:
Just go to www.DublinEventGuide.com and at the top you will find the sentence “Is this what you were looking for?”. Right below that sentence you should find a rectangular ad. Please click on it!
The ad might change every time you open/refresh the page, so I can’t tell you what it is promoting. And if you don’t see an ad there, please turn your Ad Blocker off and refresh the page and then do the clicking. ;-) Thanks!
If you click on the ad, I get between 5 and 30 cent. That is not much, but if enough people help, it will do the job to cover the cost to keep the Dublin Event Guide going. Some people have asked me for the Dublin Event Guide PayPal link for direct donations and here it is: www.paypal.me/DublinEventGuide

And now we come to some of this weekend’s free events. 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. ;-) ALL events in this list are free, but some require booking! The market events that take place every week are only posted on the website at www.dublineventguide.com
