Virtual Gigs, History Festival of Dublin & Spend the Day in Bray

At City Language School we like to encourage our students to get out, about and practice their English while discovering more about the great city and country they live in. Every Thursday we publish Three This Thursday – events or happenings that we believe our students might enjoy. This week we have come across a History Festival, a nice looking gig and a day trip to a seaside town in Wicklow.
