Hey lads,
The Dublin maritime festival is on this bank holiday weekend. It's generally pretty good with a lot to do and great ships to draw/paint/sculpt :)

There'll be some food, beer and crowds. According to Ciaran there'll also be some great weather so I'll be holding him personally responsible if there isn't ;) Right then.

Yoinked from marketting blurb:

Majestic tall ships, lively street theatre, uplifting music and a colourful outdoor market - Dublin's thriving Docklands area is the place to be this June Bank Holiday weekend, with the sixth annual Docklands Maritime Festival running from 29th May to 1st June 2009. With a record 130,000 visitors to last year's Festival, this year's event takes place on the quays both north and south of the Liffey with attractions for all ages. This year, for the first time the Docklands Maritime Festival is being delivered in association with Fáilte Ireland. Once again, a spectacular fleet of tall ships will form one of the main attractions of the festival, exciting maritime-related street theatre and musical entertainment performed by Waterford-based arts group Spraoi; Dublin's largest outdoor market offering fine food, clothing, jewellery and plants; and boat trips along the river are just some of the delights awaiting visitors. So set sail for Docklands this June Bank Holiday!

If there are any other suggestions please put up a post. If not then I propose we meet at the north side of Sean O'Casey bridge at 1:00 on Sunday and take it from there. If it's your first time don't be too shy about walking up to random people with sketch pads. We're really not that bad.... :)
