Strum - it's great - like it a lot
There is a problem, though. You have shown the Mariners Church spire taller than the RC spire (St Michaels). The last time that happened(1896), they had to tear down the tower of St Michaels and rebuild it. You will be damned to eternal fire and brimstone.

Thanks folks, much appreciated. Nothing is accurate in it, just an impression, but yes Gulliver spot on, I mean to take a section out of it, that'll spare me from the fiery furnace. Cheers. thumbright

Speaking of events, I was out at the Hooley in the People's Park yesterday, have to say the Jive Aces were terrific, looked at a few of their videos on you tube, some beautifully filmed ones there, especially Charlie Chaplins Smile.

This Cabinteely Carnival sounds interesting.DLRcoco posted this.

Cabinteely Carnival
Date:
Sunday September 11th
Location:
Cabinteely Park
Time:
1pm to 5pm
Cost:
Free

The amazing, astounding and awesome annual Cabinteely Carnival pitches up in Cabinteely Park with its attractions between 1pm and 5pm on Sunday September 11th 2016.

The Carnival will take place in front of Cabinteely House, and is a free family fun day out featuring circus performers, activities and a chance to learn some circus skills.

Some of the stars of this year's Cabinteely Carnival are:

The Barren Carrousel

An international duo trapeze act, featuring Kelsey Long (USA) and Anita Woods (Northern Ireland). Kelsey and Anita have been performing together as The Barren Carrousel since 2006. They have trained extensively in Australia, Germany, USA, Holland, France and Belgium specializing in aerial (silks, trapeze, web and hoop), contortion and acrobatics. They have toured throughout the UK and Ireland in festivals, fairs and corporate events.

Jack Wise

Jack is a magnificent, multitalented Magician. He's also a Ventriloquist, Pickpocket & Sword Swallower!!!

Jack has mastered the art of Sword Swallowing and is one of only sixty sword swallowers in the world today. He is proud to be a member of The Sword Swallowers International Association. His outstanding displays of Illusion and Magic have left audiences speechless.

Cabinteely Carnival will also feature Bouncy Castles to beat the band, an Antique Carousel, Circus Skills classes for the budding performers, Facepainting and Walkabout Entertainers. It’s going to be an unmissable day out all set against the beautiful backdrop of Cabinteely House.

Entry and attractions at the event are free but parking is very limited at the park so we recommend you walk or use public transport.

Shankill Loughlinstown & Ballybrack Local Policing Forum Public Meeting will take place in St. Laurence College, Loughlinstown on Monday 22nd of May from 7.30pm.

This is your opportunity to raise any concerns about the area with the local Gardai and see what they are doing in the area in relation to crime and public safety.

I would imagine that Tom Conlon a local author and historian (of this parish) would be talking on some historical fraud not something current !!.

I cant' find anything on any site about the talk but, I'm going down to the Eblana Club later to meet some extended family members and I'll see if there is anything around or if anyone knows where the talk will be.

No chance .... we are as white as the driven snow today, every decision is run through so many channels that its impossible to discover whos actually making the call. Sure even the poor Gardai dont know who does what in their organisation any more and they are the experts in detection :roll:

International Harbour Food Festival
Date: Sunday June 4th & Monday June 5th 2017

The International Harbour Food Festival on Sunday June 4th and Monday June 5th 2017 on the East Pier will celebrate the Bicentenary of Dún Laoghaire Harbour with Food Stalls representing countries from around the world, an Outdoor Marine Art Exhibition, Historic Street Theatre performances, Bands on the Bandstand and Strolling Entertainers.

Food Stalls representing Greece, France, Brazil, USA, Hungary, China, Czech Republic, Nigeria among others will feature everything from Falafel to Langos, Doughnuts to Dumplings and BBQ to Popcorn.

A specially commissioned Historic Street Theatre performance "The Building of a Pier" will tell the story of how the Harbour came to be built, in a fun family-friendly show. Discover the part two ships The Prince of Wales and The Rochdale played in the Harbour's development and who Richard Toutcher was.

The event will feature a Marine Art Exhibition, which will take place between 10am to 6pm from Saturday June 3rd to Monday June 5th.

Music will come from Upbeat Generation, the Lindsay Ryan Jazz Band and The Retronauts throughout the afternoon on both days of the event.

The International Harbour Food Festival will be a great way to visit Dún Laoghaire over the June Bank Holiday weekend and join the bicentenary celebrations for the Harbour.
