If you do one thing this week: Rush to the RDS

Dundrum on ice
Panot: Freezin'

Funderland at the RDS has been part of Christmas in Dublin for over 40 years. This year it has become part of the Winter Funderland at the RDS Simmonscourt Pavilion, and there'll be an array of new attractions including the amazing Break Dance, Frisbee and Wave Swinger.


The Applegreen Christmas panto Freezin' - The Story of the Snow Queen, is a fun panto with comedian Al Porter as Lolly Polly at The Olympia Theatre, Dame Street, and runs until Sunday January 10. Al is a television regular on RTE's Republic of Telly and has appeared at Sky Cat Laughs. There is no show on Wednesday January 6.


Get your skates on and try out a real ice rink in Pembroke Square in Dundrum Town Centre, Sandyford Road, Dundrum, Dublin 16, and which is running until January 10. Meanwhile, ice skating can also be enjoyed at the Blanchardstown Centre, Dublin 16, into the New Year.


The Royal Canal Amenity Group will hold a guided walk, in Maynooth today, and walkers are invited to meet in Maynooth Harbour at 12.30pm, to depart at 12:45pm. The walk is about 90 minutes in duration and is suitable for wheelchairs. The walk will proceed from Maynooth Harbour via the canal towpath to Pikes Bridge from where it will return to Maynooth through the grounds of the historic Carton Demesne.


A specially commissioned portrait of renowned fashion designer, John Rocha, by artist Geraldine O'Neill ARHA, was unveiled in the National Gallery of Ireland earlier this month. The portrait will be on view to the public to the end of January 2016. It's the latest in a series of commissioned portraits of well-known figures in Irish life at the gallery, including Maeve Binchy and Bono.
