WWN’s Event Guide



Dublin’s annual ‘Yummiest Mummy’ competition will take place this year as entrants are reminded the deadline closes this Friday. Judged by a panel of frustrated and bored husbands, the winner will be crowned after several rounds of scrutinising the yumminess of entrants. Amy Huberman will win despite not entering. Things kick off at the RDS this Saturday at 11am, tickets are priced at €10.


Wicklow council launches a trial run of their new scheme aimed at encouraging more activity in towns and villages. Wicklow will be declaring itself a ‘Dublin free’ zone this weekend, meaning no Dublin natives will be allowed to enter the county. Beaches are expected to be filled with only Wicklow natives and a few stray culchies from elsewhere.


Waterford’s latest art installation exhibition kicks off with what many locals presumed was some shitty car an owner had abandoned. Local artist Tommy Dunne displays his popular ‘abandoned car, abandoned soul’ piece on the keys of Waterford City which the artist covered entirely in seagull faeces. Entrance is free, but visitors are warned not to touch the car or anger the seagulls.


Donegal’s weekly Drive Like A Lunatic session is back this weekend. Taking place over the weekend between the hours of 1am-5am, people are encouraged to drive at outrageous speeds while covering their eyes as they hurtle through a black spot. Entry is free.


Paddy Browne’s pub is back with yet another great night of live music. Tickets are €8 online or €10 at the door on Friday. This week is not to be missed as Sting and The Police play all their hits. Paddy Browne’s would like to point out that this is not some elaborate way to lure people with outstanding warrants into the arms of the police. Things kick off at 8pm sharp.
