ENJOY Beaumont Come Dancing on 15 June, in the O’Mahony Hall in the Helix. This fundraising event is being run by Beaumont Hospital with the aim of raising funds for the Breast Clinic Appeal. As a leading national centre, Beaumont plays a pivotal role in breast care, with the team seeing approximately 9,000 patients annually. The hospital is now seeking to raise €1m to complete the building of a state-of-the-art facility which will become a single centre for all breast care outpatient needs. On the night, 16 couples composed of hospital staff will take to the floor in effort to be crowned this year’s winners. To donate or buy tickets for this event, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01 809 3000.
CELEBRATE the Doolin Folk Festival taking place from 14-16 June in Co Clare. Taking inspiration from the great festivals of the 70s and 80s such as Lisdoonvarna down the road and from the deep musical roots of the county, the Doolin Folk Festival presents powerful music in an intimate setting, so that audiences and musicians can feel at one and enjoy the communal spirit. Out on the edge of the country, musicians and audiences are reconnecting and experiencing the unbroken but ever changing nature of the rich and nourishing music.
