ENTERTAINMENT in Ireland and Northern Ireland
Name it and it's happening!
Be it cinema, clubbing, concerts, gallery, museum and other exhibitions,
theatre or organised amateur or professional sport, opportunities
abound for entertainment fun in Ireland and Northern Ireland. And
then there are the many opportunities for enjoying the outdoors:
fishing, golf and hiking to name just three.
A steady stream of Canadian talent contributes to these offerings.
Examples include concert and club performances by well-known Canadian
musicians, readings by award-winning Canadian authors, a Canadian
film week at Dublin's Irish Film Institute, and concerts by outstanding
Canadian choirs and orchestras. And with most of its players being
Canadians, add the Belfast Giants hockey team to the list (www.belfastgiants.com).
And, for ex-pats wanting play/see inline hockey, there's even a
league! Check out the Dublin City inline hockey team at: www.riothockey.tk.
There are so many entertainment venues and events, with so much
being added and deleted by the week, if not the day, that keeping
track is beyond the scope of a Web site like this. But, locals and
visitors alike are well served by many free sources of entertainment
information, as well as newspapers, including the following:
