Your readers might be interested in a great little music and arts festival taking place this Easter in Lovely Leitrim. The festival is voluntary run by music and arts enthusiasts living in the area [details below] and if the past 2 years are anything to go by, it’s going to be a great weekend….

Phase One Festival

I’m wondering if I could unabashedly promote our inaugural Summer Cider Festival coming up this weekend 4th, 5th &  6th of July at the Franciscan Well in Cork. The weekend is about showcasing Irish Craft Cider makers, to get their names on the map around Ireland. We’re a brewery of the beer sort ourselves but the point of our festivals year round are to promote either Irish Cask Beer (February) all Irish craft-breweries (Easter) and now hopefully a forum for Irish cider in the summer months. I’d be very grateful if ye could give us a plug, and indeed if ye’d possibly drop in on us anytime ye be in cork, we only serve the good beer!


Love and nom: together at last.

MiX@ is a new concept for unattached people who have had enough scary encounters on Tinder and POF “cringe at the thought of cheesy single set ups, online dating and faceless matchmaking”.

Mix@ was created by cupid’s apostles Nikki Dwyer and Alan Kennedy.

Nikki writes:

“This is not about speed dating, or gimmicky matchmaking services, this is about broadening your circles of people with whom you ‘mix’ with, the fact that they are all single – well it’s just an added bonus. MiX@ is different, present at big social events you’d otherwise want to attend…”

Mix@ have given us four, yes FOUR individual passes to the Mix@ Taste of Dublin 2014 event in the Iveagh Gardens, Dublin, on Sunday, 15 June.

The current ratio for the gathering is 2:1 women

The pass includes entry to Taste of Dublin, the Mix@ marquee, a drink on arrival and an optional boogie to a performance by Smash Hits 90s.

To enter, please complete the following:
