Summer in Dublin; Ukes, GAA, keelboats and more

 A varied mix of events to keep you in that summertime mood when living is easy this August in Dublin and as the (dare we say it) kids go back to school.

 

You can add another string to your bow and tiptoe through the tulips this August at the Ukulele Hooley by the Sea in Dun Laoghaire at a two day gathering of a different kind. From baritone to soprano, grab your four stringed uke and enjoy the fun

 

Music galore continues at the Steeple Sessions in Dublin city centre’s Unitarian church with Mick O’ Brien and family, Chicago based whistle and flute player Laurence Nugent and more

 

And  if you can’t make it into the city, check out the Bodhran Sessions every Thursday Night in Monkstown, Co. Dublin

 

Far from its American Indian roots, lacrosse makes a Celtic appearance this August which sees the Celtic Cup 2013 International Lacrosse Tournament take place in Dublin with teams from Ireland, Scotland, Wales and France

 

Towards the end of the month, the BMW J24 World Championships 2013 (a J24 is a five-person sailing keelboat to you and me) takes place around Howth, Co. Dublin

 

August sees fever pitch return to Croke Park with the GAA Hurling All Ireland Championship Semi-Finals with all four provinces battling out for supremacy

 

Take a back seat at the Back Loft Theatre and see Mr Joyce Is Leaving Paris, by Tom Gallacher until the end of August 2013 right in the heart of the Liberties in Dublin City centre
