A quick note before we start with the August in Ireland - this is a listing of the events, holidays and other remarkable, calendar-related things that come up every year. A general introduction to the Irish month of August, so to say.

The listings will be added to over time, with links to related content, so see it very much as a work in progress.

If you think that an event or date merits inclusion here (not one-off events, please, only well-established and regular ones), do not hesitate to drop me a line ...
