What to do in Dublin this week

Shane McGowan and The Pogues Dublin traditional music band

They gave the walls a talking @ EPIC

Head down to EPIC this week and catch the new exhibition all about The Pogues - They gave the walls a talking. EPIC is also a fantastic place to discover what it's like to be Irish, dive into the history of Irish people and learn about what and how Irish culture has been shaped into what it is today.

"We have collaborated with Hot Press, Ireland’s legendary music, entertainment and pop culture magazine, to create a special temporary exhibition dedicated to The Pogues and Shane MacGowan. ‘They Gave The Walls A Talking’ illuminates the evolution of The Pogues, the rise of punk rock, and the role of the Irish diaspora on the British music scene – as well as the genesis of the marvellously iconic ‘Fairytale of New York’."
