We had fantastic fun at the launch of Culture Date with Dublin 8's 2018 Programme in the beautiful surroundings of The Irish National War Memorial Gardens back in April 2018. A huge thank you to the local school children from Gaescoil Inse Choir and St John of God's Hospital Kilmainham, and to photographer Marc O'Sullivan for taking some great photographs!
