The Insider

BULMERS has announced the line-up for the Live At Leopardstown gigs.

Ash, Hudson Taylor, Ryan Sheridan, Riptide and The Happy Mondays will take to the stage throughout June and August. Now in it's fifth year, the Live At Leopardstown events take place over eight summer evenings.

But we're most excited about Dublin boyos The Original Rudeboys on July 4. The trio – Sean 'Neddy' Arkins, Robert Burch and Sean Walsh – are known for their electric live sets and we definitely recommend checking them out.

• We've all had hair disasters – bad blow-drys, curling tong fiascos and way too many split ends. But tonight some of Ireland's most glam celebs will be showing off their lustrous locks at the launch of new website, shampoo.ie.

The website claims to be a one-stop shop for all your haircare needs. Claire Byrne and Maura Derrane will be popping into The Gallery at the revamped Morrison Hotel to treat themselves to mini-manis while also trying out the "Updo booth".

• Forget the lovely girls, the sashes and Daithi. This year the Roses and Daithi could be upstaged by the Kingdom Of Kerry's first Gay Pride Festival.

In February Kerry became the 14th local authority to vote in favour of gay marriage, and it's there that Ireland's Pride festivities kick off.

It runs from May 20, with lots of activities celebrating gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender communities. But the biggest day of the festival is parade day on May 25 – expect to see lots of colourful floats and camp dance routines.

• The Gate Theatre's oh-so pretty period drama Mrs Warren's Profession has been a hit with audiences and critics alike. We highly recommend checking it out. Bernard Shaw's play sparkles as he examines the complex relationship between mothers and daughters, while offering an astute view of the corruption at the heart of Victorian society. There are also tons of pretty costumes and the devilishly handsome Tadhg Murphy in one of the leading roles.
