Dublin Event Guide 871: Who do you support? – Funtropolis, Red Bull Dance Your Style, Bohemia Flea Market, Ballyfermot CherryOrchard Arts Festival, Bastille Day Ireland

Dublin Event Guide (for Free Events)

Who do you support?

Funtropolis, Red Bull Dance Your Style, Bohemia Flea Market, Ballyfermot CherryOrchard Arts Festival, Bastille Day Ireland

Hi!!

For some it can’t come soon enough,others are sad it is over: On Sunday evening at 20:00 the final game of the EURO 2024, European football championship will take place. I am not the biggest football fan, but Worldcups and European championships are a little different, so in the past I have watched a good few matches. This year – to my own surprise – just one. :-o

It is a pity for me that Germany is not in the final, but they had their chance and just didn’t play well enough. Now we need to take sides in a England vs Spain match. And funnily the reason I heard most often for people supporting Spain over England is “Can you imagine how they will go on about winning, considering that they are STILL celebrating their only world cup win in 1966?” ;-) I blame the low quality newspapers in the UK for this.

Will you watch the match? And who will you support? If you read this on Facebook, post the team that you will support below. If you don’t read it on Facebook, come to www.facebook.com/DublinEventGuide and post the team then. Even if you won’t watch the game, let us know who you would support if you HAD to support one of the two teams.

It is a pity that there were no public viewings in Ireland for any of the EURO 2024 matches, they looked like a lot of fun in other European countries!

But luckily we have some other great events happening this weekend. Funtropolis in Merrion Square is one of them. The Red Bull Street Dance competition is another. The Ballyfermot / Cherry Orchard Arts Festival also takes place. And the Bohemia Flea Market and Bastille Day celebrations on Sunday are two other great events.

Donations in July:
EUR 106

(By the end of the month, this number has to reach or exceed EUR 200 to guarantee the continuation of the Dublin Event Guide.)

If the Dublin Event Guide helps you to find out about free events in Dublin, please help with a donation.

The counter here shows the current donation status. By the end of the month EUR 200 will be subtracted to pay the bills. If more money has been donated, the rest will be carried forward. If donations have stopped below the EUR 200, the missing amount will be carried over.

Last week Cornelia, Sinead and Mary helped with a donation. Thank you so much!! Dublin Event Guide Readers are great and our help and support is much appreciated by me and (hopefully) by all other readers of the Dublin Event Guide, because without you, the Dublin Event Guide couldn’t continue!

With the above counter you know at all times where we stand and when donating is needed. Donations keep the Dublin Event Guide alive and all donors will also get some additional bonuses.

Here are some more details about donations:
Any amount is appreciated, but if you are looking for a recommendation, then I suggest a donation of 12 Euro per year. – That’s just one Euro per month and you get FOUR Dublin Event Guides for that Euro! If your funds are limited, but you still want to help, you can buy a virtual coffee for just EUR 4. All donations will be used in full for the Dublin Event Guide.

To donate, use the Dublin Event Guide Donation Page here: gturl.eu/DEGdonate. It is really easy to use and uses Stripe’s trustworthy payment processing. You can even sign up for a yearly subscription on the donation page! Yearly subscriptions will give some important financial stability and reliability to the Dublin Event Guide and are therefore very much appreciated! (Look for the RED subscription buttons at the bottom of the Donation Page.)

In case the donation page doesn’t work for you, the old links are here: You can donate via www.paypal.me/DublinEventGuide or for Revolut users among you, just use @joergbrb or now also revolut.me/joergbrb
(If possible, please send your full name and e-mail address as a message with the payment via PayPal or Revolut so that I can tell you about bonuses for donors when available.)

To buy one or two or even three virtual coffees for the Dublin Event Guide, come to the “Buy Me a Coffee” page here www.buymeacoffee.com/DublinEventG


And there is one other way to help and it is even free: If you come to www.DublinEventGuide.com and check out some of the ads and click on the ones that you find interesting, that also helps with a few cent! ?

Thank you!!

And there is more…

+++ Funtropolis by Dublin City Council
Funtropolis is free Family Fun in Merrion Square on 13+14 July and on 17+18 August, the whole event will take place in Mountjoy Square. There will be street theatre, music and dance, comedy & food stalls for the whole family. In a way it is a replacement of what was initially the Street Performance World Championships and later the City Spectacular. Funtropolis is not on a same high level as these other prior events, but it is as close as it gets. dublin.ie/whats-on/listings/funtropolis/

Some of the performers and events are Mark the Science Guy, Joe the Magician, Scientific Sue’s Magical Science and Engineering Show Generation POUND (kid-friendly choreography and group activities), Cikadas Circus, comedy with “Those Two Idiots” street theatre by AU-ADHD artist Moss Russell, samba at the Ta Tum Tum music show.  There will also the Morbid & Sons show, music at Pstryk, an interactive musical experience designed especially for children aged 3-10 years, Changemakers Storytelling, a family friendly interactive storytelling session with singing, dancing and mindfulness.
And on the music stage Code of Behaviour will create a pop, jazz and overall party atmosphere. DJ Will Softly & The Bubble Gang, along with The African Gospel Choir, Go Dance for Change and others will perform. There will be a DCC Sports and Wellbeing Zone and the mobile library will be on site. The Dublin City Council outdoor mobile child sensory unit will be available for use for anyone who identifies as neurodiverse.
And you think that is not enough yet? There is more:
The Story Yurt, with a Teddy Bears Picnic Singalong and instrument time, family music sessions, Óga Yoga, the Cosmic Movers Space Themed Dance workshop with Jess Rowell, the Three Little Pigs Puppet Show
The Bubble Guys will create huge bubbles, GOMBA & Rhythm AFRICANA will use traditional African styles of music and rhythm, a Dublin Art Class for children aged 8–12 and a Mobile Music School will run music workshops exploring the world of music-making.
Uff, that is a lot! It will be a busy day full of activities and entertainment. Don’t miss Funtropolis!

+++ SUMMER IN DUBLIN
Dublintown, the business organisation that represents shops and businesses in Dublin City, has announced a summer event programme called “Summer in Dublin”. It will run from 07 July to 25 August with street performances, dance and music every Sunday from 16:00-20:00.
A list of performers is mentioned and a list of locations, but unfortunately Dublin Town seems to want to surprise people in Dublin with pop-up performances, instead giving us a chance to plan attending the “Summer in Dublin” events.
Locations are from South Ann Street to Drury Street on the southside and Liffey Street, Capel Street, North Earl Street and Wolfe Tone Park on the northside.
Musical attractions are a New Orleans Jazz band New Brass Kings, three-piece trad band Sin Deri Si and Latin group Havana Club Trio.
There will also be dance and art and HOPEFULLY Dublintown will tell us over the next few weeks where the events will take place.

Is there ever a wrong time for learning a new skill or enhancing what you are already interested in? Maybe it is a language or an instrument or some technical skills? Or something completely different? Nearly every subject is there! Check out Udemy via the link below, they have thousands of courses and there is good chance that what you are looking for is available. Nearly all the courses are REALLY affordable!
The lowest price most of the time is EUR 12.99. Sometimes it even goes down further to EUR 9.99 and when that happens (about once or twice a year), I will tell you. But even 12.99 is definitely a good price for what you get! – Check out the website at www.getthislink.com/Udemy22 And if you buy through that link, you also help the Dublin Event Guide! :-)
