Things To Do In Dublin (1-12-14 – 7-12-14)

It’s beginning to look… a lot like Christmas! A new month begins and the last of the year of 2014, where did it all go exactly? We’ll have to make use of the little we have left, while fitting in the office party, Christmas shopping etc.

There’s some interesting new events on around the city. There’s a few new things at the theatre, with She Stoops to Conquer at the Abbey and the wonderfully named The Montherfucker with the Hat at the New Theatre. On the gig front, there’s Morrissey, Cathy Davey, Silver Apples, Lily and Madeleine and the Hypnotic Brass Ensemble. There’s also the opening of the new exhibition in IMMA called Trove where Dorothy Cross picks form the National Collection.
