What’s on in Dublin this weekend? (02/07)

Skerries 100

The annual Skerries 100 motorcycle road races will take place this weekend in Skerries, North Dublin. Thousands of people are expected to attend and Gardai have warned that a number of road closures will be in place today, Friday July 2, and Saturday July 3.

Practice races will take place today (Friday) with road closures from 3pm until 9.30pm. The road races proper take place on Saturday with road closures in place from 9.30am until 6.30pm.

Garda advice that the Main Lusk to Skerries Road (R127) will be closed during these times. Access to Skerries will be via Rush with diversions in place in Lusk.  Motorists can also access Skerries via Balbriggan using the M1.

PhotoIreland Festival

PhotoIreland Festival started yesterday, Thursday July 1 and runs until next Sunday July 11. It includes 25 exhibitions from Irish and international photographers, educational workshops, portfolio reviews, open discussion and live events. See photoireland.org for the full line up.

Dublin Garden Squares Day

Tomorrow, Saturday July 3, Dublin Civic Trust will run Dublin Garden Squares Day, what they say is a celebration of the glory of Dublin’s Georgian garden squares.

The trust invites the public to “Enjoy walking tours, live performance, stalls and children’s events in a fun family day out for all.” The events are happening at Mountjoy Square, Parnell Square, St Stephen’s Green, Merrion Square and Fitzwilliam Square. See dublincivictrust.ie for full details.

Kings of Concrete Festival

On Saturday and Sunday July 3 – 4, Kings of Concrete Festival takes place at the open area beside Dublin City Council offices at Wood Quay. The Kings of Concrete website is a bit cryptic about what exactly it is, but it seems to be a mash up of urban subcultures. Their website says, “Our ethos is simple –> “Do Something” –   get up off your ass, get out there and get stuck in, life’s too short not to.….ya dig!?”
