Songs, sports and career switching: All bases covered on this week’s What’s On
13th Jul 2018
This weekend’s Dublin What’s On is packed full of events, many of the musical variety. Aslan take to the stage at the Iveagh Gardens, while the city prepares for some country music vibes at Dublin Goes Country. There’s also plenty next week to do, whether you’re into sport, careers or classic film. Or, like me, into all three. Happy weekend from IMAGE!
Friday: It’s Alright at Aslan – Live At The Iveagh Gardens
Iconic Irish band Aslan are back to play the Iveagh Gardens this weekend, as their Feel No Shame 30th-anniversary show. It may be hard to believe that it’s been 30 years since they released their debut album, but you can relive it all, as they play the classics over two nights in a great Dublin venue. Tickets are still available from €40.
Saturday and Sunday: It’s a little bit country at Dublin Goes Country
If you’re a fan of all things country music, this weekend in Dublin will be your dream come true. Country markets, bbq food, family events and plenty of country music, from honky-tonk to bluegrass. Head to Smithfield square during the day for your food and fun fix, and then to the Grand Social and the Underground at night for the real party.
On Sunday: Support the Dubs (or Donegal, if you prefer) at the All Ireland Football Quarter Final
All-Ireland Final day is inching ever closer, and this Sunday sees the Phase 1 quarterfinals played in the fabulous setting of Croke Park. Roscommon face Tyrone, followed by Dublin facing Donegal, as we try to make it four in a row. Tickets available for the day in full on Ticketmaster for around €30.
On Tuesday: Grow your career at the IMAGE Young Businesswomen’s Forum
If you have the itch to switch careers, dip your toe in the water at the IMAGE Young Businesswomen’s forum next Tuesday in the Westbury in Dublin. All three speakers started out professional life in a completely different career than what they’re in now, and will speak about the challenges, triumphs and lessons that come with making the transition to a new job. Tickets are just €45, which includes a luxury seat gift.
On Wednesday: Put Baby out of the corner at the Dirty Dancing 30th Anniversary show at the Sugar Club
There is absolutely no question that Dirty Dancing is the best movie of all time, and it has definitely stood the test of time over the last 30 years. The Sugar Club are hosting a special screening of the iconic movie, with gourmet popcorn no less.
