Leaf-carrying tykes welcome.

Family Day Festival returns to Wolfe Tone Square [off Jervis Street, Dublin 1] this Sunday May 15, from 11am to 5pm, for a fun-filled day of family entertainment in the heart of Dublin city.
Now in its sixth year, Family Day Festival, run by One Family – [Ireland’s organisation for people parenting alone, sharing parenting and separating] – takes place each year on the UN International Day of Families.
A jam-packed programme of activities including the creation of Ireland’s Biggest Family Tree.
Children will be encouraged to take pride in their family, whatever form it may take, by drawing their family portrait on a leaf template (available at link below]).
These leaves will be combined and displayed to create Ireland’s Biggest Family Tree.
Meanwhile, Watch people parenting alone share their family’s story in our short video, One Family Stories, and find out why we support one-parent families…
This could be dangerous as we might find out that we’re all related uncomfortably close to our spouses.
I’ll bring my guns and religion.
