Happy Lunar New Year! Goat Xi Fa Cai!

As we welcome in the Lunar New Year in the year of the goat/sheep, celebrations will be held in Dublin both run by several societies in Trinity College and within Dublin City itself. If you are missing the festivities from home, or you’d love to experience what the Lunar New Year celebrations are all about, check out these events!
