This is the year of the Dragon, in the 4710th year of the Chinese calendar. Fifth in the Twelve Year Cycle and the most regal of the signs, the Dragon is self-assured, brave, passionate, conceited, and quick-tempered. Dragons are the free spirits of the Chinese Zodiac and are born monarchs.
The Dublin Chinese New Year Festival has been running for the past five years now, and more information can be found at the festival’s website here.
