Your Greystones Week


We may all be in pyjamas by 7pm most nights these days, but that’s not because Greystonians are dull or boring.

No sirree, Bob – that’s because we’re all feckin’ tuckered out. Verging on knackered.

And that’s because, alongside a healthy nocturnal life, during the day, there’s everything from birdwatching to badminton, from karate to kayaking, from the blues to Bach, and from booze to Bible studies.

So much so, we can’t quite fit every single activity here. You can catch up with the many goings-on at Luisne here, and with the many, many Greystones Cancer Support activities right here, plus Joe and his alpacas up just outside Newtownmountkennedy (generally open all year round), and that ghoulish gal Lalli de Buitlear, and her Old Delgany Burial Ground walks & talks, available on request.

For the kids, the Summer Star reading challenge is on at Greystones library. See how many books you can read this summer, and win prizes! And a cert!

There are also fun and games at the Greystones Film Club, plus, all kinds of cultural kicks (including live satellite links with the likes of The Met, The Bolshoi Ballet and The National Theatre) at The Whale., whilst The Hot Spot down at the harbour covers the quirkier, darker, more Rizla-fuelled side of music.

And don’t forget our front-page Events calendar, with a day-by-day, hour-by-hour guide to what’s going on around here.

Just, you know, get out there, and join hands with the living. Computer love – even in 3D – can never reach the heights, or the depths, of the real thing
