Building on the success of DCNYF (Dublin Chinese New Year Festival) in the past six years, we are delighted to launch our 7th Festival celebrating the year of the Horse, in the 4712th year of the Chinese calendar. DCNYF is committed to celebrating Sino-Irish relations showcasing Chinese culture and heritage to a new and wider audience while promoting integration. As we say farewell to the Snake, we enter 2014 with hope and encouragement for positive developments and improvements in the year ahead. In 2014 we greet the Wood Horse. This is considered a fortunate year that brings luck and good things. This is your Festival. This is your City. Welcome to the Dublin Chinese New Year Festival 2014. May the year bring you blessings of great fortune! From all the members of the Dublin Chinese New Year Festival Committee … Xin Nian Hao!
