If you are at a loose end tomorrow or Saturday, you should consider this show, called Poe, at the Viking A beautifully put together collection of snippets from writer Edgar Allan Poe, woven into a wonderful nights entertainment. Great acting performances all round. Viking favourite Michael James Forde is amazing as usual. One of Poe's most famous poems, The Raven, is brought to life by Michael in a compelling 10 or so minutes of theatre. Worth a look folks.

Here is the story of the Clontarf Bulls, our team of children with additional needs, who have just finished a hugely successful first season at Clontarf Rugby. There is now a waiting list of children whose families hope that they can get involved. To accept more children, the Club is relying on the goodwill of Members and/or their partners. If you can give an hour of your time to coach on Sunday mornings at 11am, from September, we can grow this initiative with your help! It's a no pressure, fun, rewarding hour with no obligation to show up every week! No coaching experience is required, just show up with a smile. Coach recruitment starts now, as the children need to get medical clearance prior to enrolment. Please contact Ivan Skelly in Clontarf Rugby on: 01-8336214 or email@example.com (Club Office). https://youtu.be/hwgBjVGT4EM
