We’re hoping the sun is shining for the outdoor screening of one of our favourite flicks showing this weekend. Happenings are presenting Groundhog Day in Leinster Cricket Club in Rathmines on Friday, and gates are open at 7PM. There’ll be a number of food stalls but you’re free to bring a picnic. Remember to pack a blanket and some warm clothes too. Now all we need is a date…

Kerry Pride

Gay pride Kerry

The marriage referendum is just around the corner and if you’re in Kerry, get yourself to the Pride Festival. It’s taking place in Tralee and there’ll be music, dancing, bowling and dog shows too. If you’re there on Friday, pop into Roundys where you can pick up some free pizza slices. #nom. All the event details are here and the festival will run until the 25th.

Temple Bar Food Market Party

The Temple Bar Food Market is turning 18 and there’s a bit of a party going on to celebrate it. There’ll be loads of deals, live music, pop-up performances, a photo exhibition and much more going on so deffo pop down to the square if you’re in the area.
