It’s mid-August, who would have thought?

 

I just don’t see time passing.

 

Maybe it’s because of all the great Dublin weekend events?

 

Hmm…

 

More than possible!

 

Let’s sink our teeth into what Dublin has to offer this weekend! 

1.Photographic Exhibition by Phil McMenemy, Morag Paterson & Ted Leeming | 3 Aug – 28 Sept

PATERSON & TED LEEMING  Photography

Last time you made it to Scotland?

 

Scotland is absolutely gorgeous but the weather often keeps us from popping over for a visit.

 

Well, that happens to be no problem at all this weekend!

 

Naul’s Easter Snow Gallery is hosting the breath-taking nature photography of  McMenemy, Paterson and Leeming.

 

This exhibition featuring pictures of both realistic and abstract nature will surely evoke your innermost emotions. What are you waiting for? Off we go to Scotland in Naul!
