Photo Ireland Festival Dublin

We all love an event, and we love it even more when it is free. If you don’t have plans this Saturday night be sure to check out Flaneur By Dublin at Smithfield Square, Dublin, from 7pm on the 2nd of July.

Flaneur By Dublin

“As part of the 7th edition of PhotoIreland Festival, Flaneur By Dublin brings to the streets of Ireland’s capital the commissioned works of two great contemporary photographers. Displayed in a series of large cubes, their work disperses over a metal pathway installed in Smithfield Square. These large cubes become lightboxes at dusk, creating a unique display and extending the enjoyment of this open-air gallery throughout the night.”

Don’t stress if you cannot make the launch night, the event is running from 3-24 July and is open all hours.

Pride Dublin

 

 

Pride Dublin

For those of you who missed it, Pride was on Saturday in Dublin. Dublin city centre was abuzz with people from all walks of life, and the vibe was like no other. There is something liberating about the fact people wore what they wanted, kissed who they wanted, danced liked no one was watching and paraded in front of thousands of people being who they are.

It was also a great day for businesses to support the LGBT community and support their employees on such an important day. Some of silicon valley’s biggest names were there with floats and they blended perfectly amongst the smaller businesses.

Pride Dublin 9

After the parade, friends, family, children and pets headed over to Merrion Square where there was singers, face painters, food stalls, a children’s play ground and everything you could want for a great day out.

If you haven’t been then you should put it in your diary for next year. It is a great day out for the gay, straight, bi and trans community.
