Rites of Passage – Dublin Fringe Festival


Rites of Passage is a series of discussions on Ireland’s past, present and future. They’ve gathered together the great and the good from all walks of Irish and international life to discuss what has gone before, present times and what could be! There are also a number of smaller events, which they are describing as hedge schools which are talks by one or two speakers. You can get the full line up of speakers and musicians for each of the seven events here.
