This year s Pride festival is Ireland s biggest ever. Stephen Robinson offers a guide to the uninitiated.
This year s Pride festival promises to be the biggest ever staged in Ireland, with organised events taking place in Galway, Belfast, Derry, and Waterford. It is likely that groups in Limerick, Cork and Drogheda/Dundalk will also host celebrations. For the first time, the various festivals span a period of over a month, with Dublin Pride kicking off on June 24th and the Waterford event finishing on August 29th. The Dublin event has been extended to a two-week festival, featuring club nights, musicals, workshops and readings, culminating in the Pride march in the city centre on Saturday June 24th.
