Between January and Auguat, a new pub had opened in Dame Street, Dublin 2.  That's just what Dublin needs, another pub... there just weren't enough of them before!

We also took a ride on the DARTdown to Dún Laoghaire for the Festival of World Cultures - which not only had music from many countries, but a French and a Dutch market.
