South William Market, Desire – IMMA Exhibition,
Dennis is chasing after Ciara this weekend! Ciara was red and Dennis is just yellow, but there will still be lots of rain and storm again. Dublin City Council is closing the car parks at Clontarf & Sandymount from Saturday until Monday, but parks stay open. Dun Laoghaire, on the other hand, is closing all parks on Saturday (and hasn’t decided yet about Sunday) and therefore Parkruns and Outdoor Markets in parks are cancelled.
But don’t worry, the weekend will definitely take place. ;-) …and there are plenty of indoor events to choose from, so don’t let the blowy weather hold you back.
A different sort of strong wind is blowing in my face at the moment: Because the support for the “Dublin Event Guide (for Free Events)” is at its lowest in the last 12 months, I have to consider taking a break until the bigger events start again. No decision is made yet and it all depends on your vote. How can you “vote”? Simple, I just take the clicks on the ad banner on the website as a vote for keeping the Dublin Event Guide going without a break.
And this is how you can help/”vote”:
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 20 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.
And here are two other ways to help if they work better for you, but they are not free:
First: You can donate directly via www.paypal.me/DublinEventGuide
Second: You can “Buy Me a Coffee” here www.buymeacoffee.com/DublinEventG
Third: For the Revolut people among you it is super easy via 0872931571.
And here are the 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 to people that have subscribed and on the website at www.dublineventguide.com
