What's happening this weekend in Clontarf.....

23 Feb 2012

Clontarf promWe're spoiled for choice for things to do and see this weekend in Clontarf, and we have all the details on our Events Page, but we just want to give you a flavour for things to come...

Theatre buffs have a great choice this weekend with Brian Friel's 'The Faith Healer' performing at the Viking Theatre.  The Viking have now scheduled a new matinee performance for Friday 24th at 3pm, and Saturday 25th is at the usual time of 8pm.  This is a mesmerising play about the power of unconditional love, from one of Ireland's strongest playwrights, and one not to be missed.

With the success of the first Comedy Night, the Viking are bringing comedy to Clontarf on the last Friday of every month, starting this Friday. See the full line up here, and get the weekend off to a laughing start.  

Also on tomorrow evening, catch Clontarf's Eoin Glackin, Bonnie Ryan and Consumer Love Affair in an unplugged session at the Rugby Club.

Tonight, Clontarf Gardening Sociey are holding their AGM and all members, and new members are welcome to attend, and discuss plans for this Spring in the garden.

If you're a sports fan, Ireland play Italy this Saturday in the Aviva as part of the RBS 6 Nations Challenge.  Kick off is at 1:30pm so why not get down to one of the great locals in Clontarf and cheer the lads on ... don't forget you score a pint in the Sheds if Clontarf's own Cian Healy scores a try by mentioning 'loveclontarf.ie' to Peter Connolly before kick off!  

Clontarf Hockey Club are holding a fundraising 'Wild Western Night' later that evening in the Rugby club, so dust off your cowboy hats and get there by 7:30pm sharp for some racing and a hoedown!

Over the weekend, the CRC on Vernon Avenue are holding their annual Paintings Exhibition so why not pop in and view their works, and if you decide on a purchase, all proceeds go directly to the CRC in Clontarf.

Finally, finish off the weekend with an indulgent treat from the cake sale which will be held after morning masses at St. John the Baptist Church, on the Clontarf Road.  If you're feeling guilty about a few weekend excesses, the weather is set to be mild and dry this weekend so Dollymount beach, the Prom or St. Anne's Park are all there for you to use for a good, brisk walk or cycle!

Enjoy !
