It’s the last fun weekend between now and Christmas. It is also a bank holiday weekend and the start of a week when the schools are off. There should be a big crowd out for it.

There’s some great music on this weekend, including the star of the BeatlesFest, Michael Thomas and one of the star acts of the DylanFest, Bulrush from Derry in Rosatos. There’s the highly rated Bullitt playing at the Sean Ti and the Cavanagh Brothers at Big Ben’s. The Ferryport has Formula 1 and the Box the Fox. Paddy the Shoe is playing in Rawdons.

I must say that I’m really looking forward to it.
