The SCA Shire of Dun In Mara will participate in Dublin’s Pride Parade.

Participation has been confirmed; Aodh has wristbands for access. Contact him via Discord or email to to arrange to get hold of one in advance, should you need to. Otherwise, we’ll meet up before the actual March (which starts at 12:00) outside the Grand Social on Liffey Street from 10:00 onwards (or inside, if the weather requires it). We’ll move on to O’Connell Street at around 11:00; we’re in either Block 4 or Block 5, which puts us slightly north of the Spire on the west side of O’Connell Street.

The March usually takes about 3 hours to complete. Wear shoes in which you can both stand for a while and walk. Otherwise, please wear your brightest coloured garb. If you need loaner garb, please let Aodh know!

Afterwards, we’ll hang out for a while in the Pride Village at Merrion Square. At 18:00, we’ll move on to the Storyteller pub on Grand Canal Street, where we’ve a table booked. There will be some food there; monetary contributions toward it are appreciated but not required.

If you’d like to come along, but have mobility issues which would prevent you from marching, you can collect a wristband at the Grand Social and meet us at the Pride Vollage afterward, or at the Storyteller - whatever suits!
