Catch a flick

Heading to the cinema this weekend? Odeon Cinemas is offering 50% off tickets bought online between June 21st to 26th using the code 50JUNE.

Must-see films include Wonder Woman, critically acclaimed since its release, which follows the journey of Amazonian princess Diana as she becomes engulfed in the chaos of the First World War, accompanied by a hair-raising theme tune. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is also well worth the watch, following the adventures of the Guardians as they hunt down Peter Quill’s father following the events of the first film.

Unfortunately for those hoping to catch Transformers: The Last Knight or Tubelight, tickets to those two films aren’t part of the promotion.

Travel with Aldi

If you’re departing on holidays over the summer, Aldi’s latest tranche of SpecialBuys includes a range of travel goods, such as travel cases, duffle bags, travel games, power banks and selfie sticks. They’ve also got travel toothbrushes and miniature bottles of dry shampoo to keep you looking on top even while trudging through stuff airports.

Kids go free

Good news for parents – kids can travel on selected public transport services for free this July with the Child Leap Card, running from Monday 3rd to Sunday 16th.

Minors with a valid card with at least 1c of credit will be allowed to travel for free on all Luas, Dublin Bus (except Airlink), DART, commuter rail (within Dublin’s Short Hop Zone and on the Cork to Cobh/Midleton lines) and Ashbourne Connect services. Bus Éireann services will also be free to use provided there’s a Leap Card validator available – that includes services in Dublin, Cork city, Limerick city, Galway city and Waterford city.

Child Leap Cards can be purchased online, while a limited number are available from offices in Dublin, Cork, Galway, Limerick and Waterford.
