November’s news from Dún Laoghaire Town

09. 11. 2023

Welcome to our November

DúNLaoghaireTown.IE newsletter

Our town will be brimming with cultural and festive activities this November, from the largest ice rink in Ireland, the return of the Comedy Festival and the seasonal delight of Santa’s Experience at the National Maritime Museum. Myrtle Square’s infrastructure improvements are wrapping up, including the greening of Convent Lane and improvements along George’s Street. We welcome to our town a number of new businesses this month, opening of a new Best4travel store and a new Firebyrd outlet. Looking further ahead the town will benefit from the announcement that it is to host the prestigious IRC European Championship in September 2024 and also from the return of the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in March 2024. On the business skills development front DLR LEO’s upcoming workshop on ‘Building a Better Business’ is all set to boost local businesses. If you are interested in innovation and business growth then you can look forward to insights from Dermot Casey (Industry Research & Development Group) at the November Digital Dun Laoghaire Meetup. Learn more about all the above in more detail below.
