April Events Calendar


Of all the important days and events taking place this coming month April Fools' Day is high on the "lets have fun" list. April Foods' Day never disappoints the young at heart and in spirit.

What's going elsewhere: This April dining event in Limerick, Ireland, is a must-do for fans of the old Fawlty Towers series. "Faulty Towers...the dining experience." http://www.limerick.ie/visiting/whatson/aprilevents/2012-04-11faultytowers.html You can definitely count me as a FT fan. It does not matter how the name of the poorly run establishment is spelled.
