In brief

Tomorrow (27th July) sees the opening of a new production of The Plough and The Stars in the Abbey Theatre. I'll definitely be going to see this as soon as I can.

Dublin is named a UNESCO City of Literature. I'm torn between being very pleased and cynically dismissing this as a worthless title. I suppose it depends on what we do with it.

On Thursday, Juventus will be in Dublin to take on Shamrock Rovers in the Europa League. RTE will show the game live on TV.

And finally, I hope any of you who were at the Dun Laoghaire Festival of World Cultures at the weekend were as impressed as I was. Very good festival; all the volunteers and performers should be pleased with how well the weekend went. The Mela event in the People's Park, primarily celebrating Indian culture, was my favourite part of the festival.
