Ireland Update:

Last time I noted on the calendar several events taking place in Dublin. However, as the plan is to do a road trip by Car Hire, Ireland I have had a look at some of the other places I want to visit such as Cork. From April onwards Cork is certainly living up to its cultural billing:

April 2010

21/04/2010 - 25/04/2010 Cork World Book Fest

A celebration of literary works with

exhibitions, author readings and

events in the cities libraries.

As a book lover that does sound right up my street but there is more

June 2010

12/06/2010 - 27/06/2010 Cork Midsummer Festival

The highlight of the Cork Summer

Calendar, includes theatrical

productions, street performances,

and Live at the Marquee.

Again, love theatre etc so sounds like that could be a blast but that's not all Cork has on offer:

July 2010

July 2010

10/07/2010 - 16/07/2010 Cork Week

One of Ireland biggest sailing

events, with entertainment and

events all week.

So where to begin? Well next I think I will keep collating all the other events then tally them off, the cluster of the most wins....probably!

Ireland Road Trip Update.

I have had more time this week to do some more research on possible events and dates for the proposed car hire Dublin road trip round Ireland. Here is a provisional calendar to be mixed, matched and whittled down:


MARCH 2010

20th Rhod Gilbert-already discussed

MAY 2010

9th Jamie Cullum

25th Frankie Boyle-another comedian I'd like to see live even if he can be a bit close, if not over the knuckle!


19th Pink-The singer, like some of her tracks so would love to see her Carnival show.


2-4th Dara O'Briain-Yes, another comedian but abslutely great, love how he can take even the most mundane and turn it into an adventure.

Only thing is that's a big spread of months so something in there will have to give.

More news soon with other cities/towns as so far this is very Dublin centric!
