Love Irish design? You seriously can’t afford to miss tomorrow’s gathering of Ireland’s coolest creatives and craftspeople at Dublin’s Show & Tell…

A one-day design destination for cultured Dubliners, Show &?Tell is aptly named for its combination of inspirational design talks – speakers include Gavin Prendergast of Urban Picnic, Andrea Horan from Tropical Popical, Clare Grennan of the Irish Design Shop, Avril Stanley of Body & Soul, and Tara Prendergast of Biscuit – as well as delectable design-led Christmas stalls.
