A month ago Dublin witnessed a horde of zombies rising from the dead to celebrate two worthy causes, the Irish Cancer Society and Barnardos. This deadly bunch dressed in amazing costumes was prowling from St. Stephens Green to Temple Bar to raise money and ultimately celebrate life.
It is the third year that Dublin is gathering its dead to raise a much needed contribution to a humanitarian cause. An estimated 5 000 zombies were seen crawling their way and moaning through the streets of Dublin from 2 pm and well into the night.
Deteriorating rapidly has never been more popular at the moment.
But if you didn’t enjoyed the experience of walking amongst the dead, you can always try to walk amongst another sort of giant dead.
Yesterday, on September the 19th, Dublin was welcoming another set of awe-inspiring life-size deadly beasts. Tyrannosaurus Rex and his pals will return to stalk the land after 65 million years of absence on earth.This welcome won’t last long. Only 4 days.
Global Creatures in association with BBC Worldwide Ltd have put together an amazing WALKING WITH DINOSAURS worldwide tour at the O2 arena to celebrate the life of these captivating monsters. Ticket prices range from €24.90 to €46.00, available from Ticketmaster.
So if you have missed the deadly domination of zombies this week you can always catch up with the 200 million year domination of dinosaurs next month. You will get to see another set of deadly monsters walk, you’ll hear them roar and come face to face as they fight for survival and supremacy in Dublin.
