Travel Brigade opens its 5th season with a visit to Dublin focusing on the great writers the city has produced. This being Ireland, we’ll start with a “Literary Pub Crawl” that matches pints with prose. We’ll also talk about the historic Book of Kells and learn how to enjoy an evening of Irish folk tales. We’ll stop by the James Joyce Centre and also learn about an audio tour that lets you experience the author’s masterpiece Dubliners at various points throughout the city. Enjoy the trip!

Dublin-native Mark Geary is a celebrated musician who began his career more than 20 years ago. In 1992, Mark bought a one-way ticket to New York City and spent several years playing the local circuit in the East Village which included numerous appearances at the acclaimed Sin-é cafe with other upcoming artists including friend Jeff Buckley. Mark is described as a "quintessential singer-songwriter" and his records have been hailed as encapsulating both boisterous joy and gentle, delicate moments that endear themselves to the listener and evoke comparisons to artists such as Van Morrison, John Lennon, Elliot Smith and Richard Thompson. His body of work includes 4 studio albums, 2 live recordings and collaborations with a number of artists including the release in 2013 of a charity version of his song 'Christmas Biscuits' with friend Glen Hansard in aid of St Vincent De Paul, in Ireland. Mark has also lent his talents to the visual arts scoring several films including “Loggerheads” (2005), “Steel City” (2006) and TriBeCa Film Festival “Sons of Perdition” (2010). Touring and performing are Mark's lifeblood and passion, and his finely crafted songs and charismatic storytelling provide his audience with a unique experience on every occasion. Over the last 20 years Mark has toured all over Europe, US & Australia, and has shared the stage with The Swell Season, Glen Hansard, The Frames, Josh Ritter, Bell X1, Coldplay, Elvis Costello, The Pretenders & Joe Strummer. Mark has recently competed tours in Switzerland and Germany, including a headline spot on the critically acclaimed “Songs from Ireland: Old and New” tour. Dates in Switzerland, Ireland and New York are also planned in which Mark will be road testing songs from his forthcoming 5th album, released in Autumn 2015.?
Located on the banks of the Liffey River in Dublin, the Marker Hotel sits steps away from many historic sites in Dublin—The Bord Gáis Energy Theater, Trinity College Dublin and The Convention Center Dublin. The Marker Hotel is part of Dublin’s Docklands, an area that has undergone significant restoration and rehabilitation. Once important because of the goods that were shipped in and out, the newly-nicknamed “Silicon Docks” is significant for housing tech giants Google and Facebook. And in keeping with the theme of development and reinvention, The Marker Hotel Dublin is a brand new hotel that lives up to the dynamic reputation area of its location.
Executive chef Gareth Mullins talks Irish cuisine, journalist Joan Scales shares her favorite Dublin activities, and Anthony "Booster" Bools sings a cautionary tale that could have inspired Beyonce’s Put a Ring On It.
And if you’re looking to enjoy an authentic Irish treat that you can’t get anywhere else, Darragh Doyle, community manager WorldIrish.com, explains his favorites and where to get them. All this and more, during Travel Today with Peter Greenberg from The Marker Hotel Dublin.
Dublin is one of a few cities in Europe that has not lost sight of the human interaction element. In fact, to the Dublin citizens, it is still the way of life that can neither be substituted with historic buildings nor preserved just for small villages. Founded in 841 by the Vikings, Dublin is a city with an interesting historical past that’s tightly attached to all the city’s monuments and churches. A visit to St. Patrick’s Cathedral or Christchurch Cathedral will take you back to Medieval times while a walk around Merrion square will remind you of the glorious days of Dublin when it was ranked as the second city of the British Empire after London. Today, Dublin is the Cosmopolitan capital of the Irish Republic with 1 million inhabitants. Despite the many changes the city has encountered in the last decade, it still remains as a desirable place for any who wishes to visit. more at www.avtravel.org and www.avtravel.com

We now know the extent of his injuries and what will happen to him next.

The rumors are also already flying as to what Seth's return will look like and we want to hear what you think will happen.
