High lights of Dublin Pride
Live, Love, Laugh,

Pride is upon us

Yes, it’s that time of year when the LGBT community gets together and shows not just Dublin, but all of Ireland, how far we have come. It’s a time when we march together to highlight current issues. The March is on Saturday, 29th June at 2pm starting from Parnell Square and finishing at “Pride Village” on Merrion Square. This years Pride Village will be an event for all ages with a fun fair for the young and bar for over 18s.

It’s also a time when the community enjoys events celebrating the diverse nature of our rainbow society. Dance the night away on Dyke Night, which bring together women from all over the country (buy your tickets in advance here). Join the culture vulture for A Liberating Party, an exhibition by Tonie Walsh at the Ballyroan Library.
