PROGRAMME LAUNCH 2018
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!
