Here’s what’s happening around the country this weekend
When it comes to planning your weekends in Ireland, you really are spoiled for choice. That’s why we’ve teamed up with Mastercard to bring you the ultimate event guide every weekend for the rest of the year. Your weekend starts here:
Founded and directed by Louise Mooney and Ian O’Maonaigh in 2015, the Drumcondra-based Humanitarian Symphony Orchestra promises a night of lively music and entertainment - all in aid of the Irish Cancer Society.
You'll get to enjoy the likes of Brahms Hungarian dances, Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker Suite and of course, A Salute to the Big Apple and more.
Since its founding, the local orchestra has raised much needed funds for charities, such as Doctors Without Borders, St. Vincent De Paul, Temple Street Foundation, Make A Wish Foundation, St Peters and St Columba‘s School music development. So if you feel like enjoying a night of culture in aid of a good cause, be sure to head along!

If you're around Bushy Park in Terenure this Saturday morning and fancy flexing your yoga skills or even trying it out for the first time, you can. Thanks to Rathmines Collective, an experienced yoga teacher will host a class at 11am every Saturday at the market, guiding yoga enthusiasts of all levels through a variety of different styles of yoga.
All you have to do to take part is make a €5.00 donation and each month, the organisers will donate money to local and international charities.
Fancy a trip down memory lane this Sunday? The RTÉ Concert Orchestra will be hosting a screening of the Oscar award winning film while playing a live score throughout in the beautiful surroundings of the National Concert Hall.
The film was a huge hit around the world when it was released in 1995 so it is sure to conjure up some fond memories or even create new ones, as it's on at the family-friendly time of 2pm.
