Things To Do In Dublin (15-12-14 – 21-12-14)

Ok, we’ve pulled out all the stops with the wrapping paper backdrop, so it’s officially Christmas. But let us not forget what Christmas is really all about… presents!

New plays this week include War of Attrition and Pony Panto at the Project. There’s also a good variety of gigs with Sinead O’Connor, Glen Hansard, Lisa O’Neill and Damien Dempsey. My tip of the week has to be dear old Gruff Rhys at the Pepper Canister Church . Not to be missed!
