Hi all!

After two super busy weekends, this one is a little quieter. Still lots of events, but some less than for the last two weeks. Thank goodness, some will say! :-) This week the National Gallery events are missing in this Dublin Event Guide because they misconfigured their website and it was unreachable. Oddly, the Science Gallery website was also not working properly and the Botanic Gardens website was changed and is now a total mess. People want to make my life difficult it seems. ;-)

On the donation front we made a tiny bit of progress. The bill for June is now down to EUR 195. That is still a LOT of money to find in the next 2 weeks, so I really really need your help! If you hate it that I beg all the time here, then believe me, I hate it more!!!! But I am the one who has to find the money. :-O If you could support the Dublin Event Guide, I am suggesting a very fair EUR 12 for the year, that’s just 23 cent per Dublin Event Guide Edition or less than 3 pints for the whole year! That’s not much if you think about how much value the Dublin Event Guide brings you every week! ;-) Higher and lower donations are also appreciated! Every Euro counts!

If you are a great and helpful person, you can help via PayPal here or if you don’t like PayPal too much and prefer to use your credit card go to GoFundMe here. THANK YOU!!

And don’t forget that you can also help without spending a cent of your own money, if you buy through the advertisement links that are in the Dublin Event Guide or that are on the Dublin Event Guide Shopping Page at www.DublinEventGuide.com/shop If you want to buy from Groupon or LivingSocial or Amazon or Bookdepository or eBay or Asos or PrettyLittleThing or SportsDirect, just go to that website and click on the relevant link and it will bring you to the right place. The company you buy from will take 5-8% out of their profit (depending on the company) and will reward the Dublin Event Guide for promoting that company. But importantly you don’t pay more! Here are the links: www.dublineventguide.com/shop Thanks for using this page!

++++++++

The Dublin Event Guide needs your continued help in two areas: Your donations help paying the bills. Just 1 Euro per month (12 Euro per year) would be great, more would be even better. Not many subscribers are prepared (or able) to help, so please don’t rely on others! Your money will be used to pay the monthly EUR 240 bill for sending the newsletter using MailChimp, for web hosting and domain names. I am happy to work 35 hours on the Dublin Event Guide every week without making anything from it, but for the bills I need your help.

You can make your donation at www.perfectresults.info/donate.htm using Paypal or CreditCard or send me a mail at dublineventguide@gmail.com if you prefer to pay by bank transfer. Corporate or enterprise sponsors are very welcome too and will get a bundle of benefits as a thank you for their donation, contact me on sponsorship@dublineventguide.com to discuss the details.

And here is the second area where you can help: Without you spreading the word we would have never reached 24,000 subscribers and 75,000 Facebook Likes. Send your friends to www.dublineventguide.com where they can subscribe as well.

+++++++++++

And here is a great opportunity to help the Dublin Event Guide for absolutely no cost to you:

Without putting your hand in your pocket at all you can help the Dublin Event Guide! Just use the ad links in the Dublin News Section and the banner ads in other sections as often as possible when you buy/order goods. If you buy goods immediately (in the same session) after clicking on a link/ad that you find in this publication (for example for Groupon, LivingSocial, Amazon, Book Depository, LastMinute etc), then you help the Dublin Event Guide everytime.
This is how it works: The company you buy from will give a small commission (5-8%) to the Dublin Event Guide as a thanks for pointing you in their direction. This might only be 30 cent a go, but if many of you did it every time you buy something online, then it could make a big dent into the EUR 240 needed. Importantly, you do not pay more, but the merchant accepts a slightly smaller profit. So clicking on these ads is helping everybody! Thanks!

Have an event-full weekend and week,

–Joerg

Feel good slot

The “Feel Good Slot” at this place in the Dublin Event Guide is to share some inspirational, motivational or thought provoking quotes, stories or video clips. You wonder why I added this section to this e-mail magazine? If your week was great, you might not need it, but most of us had some challenging moments in the last week and there could be more in the coming week and this section is for the people that want to overcome the hurdles, achieve more and remember that despite all, life is great!

This week’s Feel Good Slot brings you a short video about Values in your life. Watch it here:

Support

This part is important to “keep the show on the road”:

To cover the cost for the Dublin Event Guide I need your help and every week generous and nice Dublin Event Guide readers help with a donation.

Last week Gennadii N, Tadgh C and Niamh D helped with a MUCH needed donation. Thankj! Without donations, the Dublin Event Guide will not survive so your donation is MUCH appreciated. Unfortunately I need even more people to help like the wonderful people that helped last week!

The cost for sending the weekly newsletter is EUR 240 per month and a donation from you of just EUR 12 per year will ensure that I will be able to pay the bills.
Has the Dublin Event Guide helped you to find events that you otherwise wouldn’t have known about, or have you saved money by finding great free events? Then please go to here and give something back if you can!

I appreciate ANY help: EUR 12 would be great (that’s just 25 cent per week!), but even if it is just the price of 2 pints it will help.

You can donate online by following this link to the PayPal&CreditCard donation page. If you want to transfer your donation directly to my account, just send a mail to dublineventguide@gmail.com and I will send you the details.

All events listed in this Event Guide are free of any admission charges (or at least appear to be free) unless otherwise stated. I try to find confirmation in all cases and do my best to double-check the information. However errors can happen and therefore no guarantee for correctness can be given.

Joergs Picks

This section is intended to provide some help in picking and choosing from the huge number of events by sharing with you what I will/might or would do. This is not a “best of…” list and if an event is not listed here, it by no means implies that the event is not interesting. Instead my “picks” are just based on my personal preferences. All events mentioned here are described in detail further down.

This weekend there is Bloomsday and the Solarfest at Dunsink Observatory and the Bikefest in Cabinteel. These are all on Saturday. On Sunday you can go to the BikeFest in St. Anne’s Park. And then on Thursday the next Science Gallery exhibition will be launched.

Competitions

Lica B Browne’s Energy Healing and Spirit Travel

I will leave this message here for one more week:

This is not really a competition, instead it is an offer by Lica B Brown for all interested Dublin Event Guide readers. So maybe I should call it a “competition with a success guarantee”?! ;-)

Lica B Brown is an Energy Healer, Spirit Guide, Artist and Entrepreneur and she provides Energy Healing and Spirit Travel sessions. She is offering a free sessions to all interested Dublin Event Guide readers. You should definitely read the description on the website below, before you book a session so that you understand what is offered and can decide if this is for you. Then you can book via meetingbbrowne@gmail.com

In Lica’s words, this is what she is offering
“If you have tried many things and they help a bit, or not at all. You are unsure what to do, but now your mind-heart is open to something new. A healing some call illusionary – is it an illusion that we are more than the sum of our parts? Is it an illusion that we do not know what keeps us alive – it is not physical for sure, but subtle, like subtle energy. My Energy Healing and Spirit Travel can help you with many soul, emotional, intellect and physical ailments. Witness my clients’ testimonies.”

Dublin news

Help the Dublin Event Guide! It won’t cost you a cent!

Do you enjoy free events? Does it help you to find out about all these free events simply in one e-mail magazine or on one website? Does the Dublin Event Guide (for Free Events) deliver all this for you and maybe even more? In that case, you probably also would want it to continue forever, right?

To achieve that some money is needed. Donations are a great help, but not everyone feels they can donate at the moment. So here is the solution: If you could help with a donation without having to pay a cent from your own money wouldn’t that be cool? You can!!

When you buy books online, buy them from Book Depository or from Amazon and use these links to go to the website:

Book Depository
Amazon

And when you buy from Living Social or Groupon use these links:

Groupon
LivingSocial

Or when you buy from eBay or you want to buy holidays or clothes or anything else, check first

www.dublineventguide.com/shop

When you click on the link and then buy, your books/products/holidays etc cost exactly the same as if you went to the website directly. But if you go via the links above, the Dublin Event Guide (for Free Events) will get 5-8% of what you spend as a commission. That’s not a lot, but if you and lots of other people used that link every time, it would amount to a fair amount of crucially important money. Use the links often, actually EVERY time you buy from the relevant site, not just once!

Giving money for free! That’s how easy it is. ;-) THANK YOU!!!

And if you want to donate money directly, then you can do that here: www.perfectresults.info/donation.htm or www.GoFundMe.com/DublinEventGuide

Bloomsday!?!?! What is that?

You either love it or you don’t care at all about Bloomsday, there seems to be nothing in between. It is a HUGE day for some and others don’t even know what it is about. If you belong to the latter group, let me help you a bit.

Bloomsday is a made up day and nothing of it is based on real events. James Joyce wrote the book Ulysses between 1914 and 1922 and the book describes one day, Thursday 16 June 1904 when Leopold Bloom, a fictional figure in the book, went about his business from 08:00 to the early hours of the next day. This invented day, lived by an invented person became Bloomsday.

You could compare it to McClane Day! Which doesn’t exist!!! But would be the day just before Christmas when we copy all the things that John McClane did in Die Hard. We go to Nakatomi Plaza for a Christmas Party, have a disagreement in the toilet and then spend the rest of the day to fight against Max Gruber and some terrorists/thieves with all sorts of weapons. So if McClane Day makes sense to you, then Bloomsday will also make sense.

The James Joyce fans dress up like characters from the book in clothes that were worn by people around 1904, then they have a breakfast like Leopold Bloom and visit the locations he went to during the day.

Does that help a bit? If not, get a better description here: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bloomsday :-)

I think we should plan for McClane Day! We just have about 6 months to prepare for it! :-O

THANKS!!!

Library fines will be abolished

Libraries in Ireland are a great resource that could be used a lot more, but if they are used more or not will probably have no impact on society or the economy or the happiness of the nation whatsoever. Reading books is a good thing but there are many ways you can read books and you can get your books. In my opinion the E-Book and Audio book selection has to be expanded significantly and the libraries should allow the users to suggest specific e- and audiobooks for purchase, but apart from that there is not much that needs to change.

Michael Ring, Minister for Rural & Community Development, seems to think differently and I have to speculate that it comes from having nothing else to do in his department. Ring thinks that operating hours for libraries should be extended to 08:00-22:00 on 365 days a year (Who wants to be in a library at 21:00 on Christmas Eve!?!?) and he things that library fines have to go! At the moment the use of libraries is completely free and ONLY if you keep a physical book longer than the allowed loan period of three weeks (I think!) you have to pay a small, but increasing fine when you bring the book back. The purpose of the fine is to make sure that people bring the book back in time. But Ring thinks that it keeps people away from libraries.

In an ideal world nobody will steal and everybody will love thy neighbours. But unfortunately the world is not ideal. That’s why we have laws. And in the same way as there will always be people (inlcuding politicians) that will try to “minimise” their tax payments, there will always people that will forget to bring back some or all of their loaned books.

I think we should abolish library fines when we abolish fines for under declaring taxes.

Ring thinks people will bring books back even if there are no fines because the libraries are owned by the communities: Ring thinks people will still return books even if there is no fine.

He said: “I think people will respect the libraries because as I say it is not Government it is community, it is belonging to the people and we want to make these community hubs for the future.”

Is he deluded or absolutely right? What do you think?

Opportunities

The former “Opportunities” section is now the place where the weekly nationwide clever event map from our sponsor Energia will be featured. Full details about the events on the map are on the Energia blog: gturl.eu/Energia18_wk25

Oddly, there are two events on the Energia list that are listed as free, which are not free at all and another event is listed as a low priced event, but has relatively high charges. All events listed in the Dublin Event Guide are definitely free!

Exhibitions

Based on your feedback, I have decided to do the following with the Exhibition section in this newsletter from now on: I will provide you with a link to a near-comprehensive listing of exhibitions provided by www.visualartists.ie . For me to list all exhibitions would only be doubling their good work and would be an inefficient use of my resources. The link is www.visualartists.ie/category/listings/dublin/

On top of that I will every now and then include here a small selection of exhibitions that either are not mentioned in the Visual Artist listing or are note-worthy to be mentioned separately.

The museum’s collection, the only one of its kind in the world, constitutes an incomparable direct link to the past of almost 6.5 million Irish and 40 million Irish-American people.

Bloomsday Events at James Joyce Tower and Museum

08:00, Sat 16 Jun

James Joyce Museum, Joyce Tower, Sandycove , Co. Dublin

Bloomsday is around the corner again. The James Joyce inspired day that causes major palpitations for Joyce fans and doesn’t move the rest in the slightest. The festival runs from Monday 11 June – Saturday 16 June with the main Bloomsday on Saturday 16 June.

There are plenty of events happening during the week, but nearly all of them are not free, some even quite pricey. Maybe that is an indication about the affluence of the audience that is Bloomsday mad?

Luckily there is one glorious exception! The James Joyce Museum in the James Joyce Tower in Sandycove will have a whole range events that are all free of charge.

After a whole week of events, the final day and main day will look like this:

The Tower opens at 08:00 for a day of Bloomsday festivities. Actor Bryan Murray reads excerpts from Ulysses at intervals over the morning and early afternoon, with occasional performances by Caitriona Ni Threaisaigh and Mary Pat Moloney and traditional contributions by Joycean pilgrims and the visiting public throughout the day.

Admission is free.

Magazine Fort – Guided Tour

10:00, Sun 17 Jun

Magazine Fort, Phoenix Park, Dublin 8

The Magazine Fort in Phoenix Park was for a long time completely neglected, but it is hugely rich in history. Many have seen it as a barred off concrete fortress in a corner of Phoenix Park and even more don’t even know or have forgotten that it exists. The old Phoenix House, the home of the British Viceroy, was on the site where the fort was built from the early 17th century and then in 1734 the Fort was built and extended in 1801.

In 1916 the Fort was raided by the rebels who expected to find a lot of explosives there, but found the Fort nearly empty. In 1939 the IRA raided the Fort and stole more than a million rounds of ammunition, but most of it was recovered over the following weeks.

Since 1988, the Irish Army doesn’t use the Fort anymore and gave it back to the Office of Public Works (OPW), but not much good has happened to the Fort in the last 30 years (!!) and there were numerous speculations about the reasons for that.

Finally since 2016, guided tours are provided and this year from April until end of October there will be three tours every Sunday at 10:00, 12:00 and 14:00. Only 20 places are available on each tour and if there is a big event in Phoenix Park the tour will be cancelled.

Tickets are available at the Phoenix Park Visitor Centre on a first come, first served basis and can not be pre-booked. A shuttle bus will bring the ticket holders to the Fort.

Historic Women’s Emancipation Cycle

Clontarf Promenade, Clontarf Road, Dublin 3

Freedom Machines were the bikes and the cycle is going from the Sails Sculpture on Clontarf Seafront at Alfie Byrne Road to St. Anne’s Park. So it is a super short cycle, but it is a cycle of a group of women to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the right to vote for women.

On Sunday, however, all genders and all ages are invited to join the women on the cycle to the Bike Fest in St. Anne’s Park, so everybody is welcome.

There are some hugely talented people among them and it is a great idea to meet up with others who have the same hobby. Find out on their website below or on their Facebook Page where they will meet and join them if you do some sketching/drawing yourself. I know that the Dublin Sketchers often use the Dublin Event Guide to find interesting free events and I am delighted to be able to help!

Dog Friendly Ireland Day

09:00 – 21:00, Fri 22 Jun

Dublin (various locations)

Dogs Trust Ireland is asking restaurants, hotels, workplaces, public transport and anything in between to allow dogs access their premises on this one day to make Ireland more dog friendly.

And dog owners are encouraged to visit the premises that support “Dog Friendly Ireland Day” together with their dog.

Oddly, though Dogs Trust Ireland missed an important aspect of this day: It is necessary to provide a comprehensive list that mentions all locations across Ireland where dogs are allowed in on that day. It seems that Dogs Trust had the right idea and participating premises could register and would get a Goody Bag with posters, treats and tips. But when they ran out of Goody Bags, they made the mistake to stop registration. Oops! And even the ones that managed to register are not listed on the website. Double Oops!

This is odd

Please note: This section contains observations taken from the world I live in that strike me as odd. I express my personal opinion and you might not share it. ;-) If you are easily offended by opinions that are not identical with your own, please don’t read this section and I am VERY serious about that!

Don’t get sick in Ireland!! – Disastrous Irish Health System

What a shocker! RTE News told us Thursday that the number of people in Ireland who are on waiting lists to be treated or seen by a doctor has grown to a shocking number of over 707,000. This is an unbelievably huge number. 15% of the population of Ireland is waiting!! FIFTEEN percent!!

According to the Euro Health Consumer Index from 2017, the number of Irish patients waiting for surgery or an outpatient appointment is “abysmal”. They have concluded that Ireland has the WORST hospital waiting list in Europe.

It is not totally clear how RTE arrived at this number, but there is an Outpatient waiting list of 511,000 and an Inpatient waiting list of 78,000. There is planned procedure waiting list of 12,000 as well and adding all these up comes to around 600,000. so there are still 100,000 missing. But even if the waiting list was ONLY 600,000, that is still more than 12.5% of the population in Ireland.

If you are affected by this, check out the Cross Border Health Care Directive, this article in the Journal.ie outlines what it does.
