Dubliner Ronnie Drew passed away last week, for many years he performed alongside Luke Kelly, Ciaran Bourke and John Sheahan as a member of The Dubliners (who inspired many Irish bands as diverse as U2, Sinead O'Connor, Damien Dempsey and The Pogues) speaking as an Irish musician (though not born in Ireland- regretfully, my family originates from co. Donegal) and a member of The Vandolins, a group influenced by the likes of the Dubliners, I would like to pay my respects to Ronnie Drew. slainte!
You're planning a trip to Dublin, but you've got no idea what to do, what to see, where to go. Well, I can help you.Here's my top 10 list for things to do in Dublin:
10)The U2 Studio's: For fans of U2; take a look at the U2 studio's! There are two in dublin: Windmill Lane and Hanover Quay. The one in Hanover Quay is still used, and maybe you can meet Bono or someone else!
9) General Post Office: The building was used in the Easter Rising, and there are still bullet holes in thepillars in front of the building. Nice to take a look, or post a card ofcourse!

Christmas shopping in Dublin city just isn't what it used to be, lots of the stores don't bother decorating, some of the stores are too big and have nothing in them. I'm sticking to the mall this weekend
