Anyone for Scrabble?


Want to join Madonna, Sting and the Queen in a passion that Janet Street-Porter once described as being more addictive than cocaine, champagne and group sex? Get playing Scrabble.

Whether or not you know that there are 124 two-letter words containing every letter in the alphabet (except v), or that ten of those are spelled with vowels only, there’s a scrabble club in Irishtown and Ringsend Community Centre that welcomes all, novices or pros.

Every Wednesday from 11am to 1pm the Scrabble group meet. It is open to both experienced players or those who want to learn in a relaxed environment. The sessions are free and tea, coffee, and biscuits are provided for €1. Parking is available. Contact Aine at 085 860 7665 for further details.
