#LobsterFestival – Dalkey's Lobster Festival (23,24 and 25 August) is for the second time, to welcome visitors to experience and enjoy the crab and all that Jazz!, writes Jehan Ashmore.

The south Dublin Bay coastal town, once the principle port for Dublin during medieval times, is to be a fusion of local seafood and a gathering of the best of current global jazz musicians, plus fun free events for all the family.

Among the musicians will be Sharon Shannon who performs on the opening day of the festival (23 August). For details on how to win a pair of tickets, check out the festival's facebook page below.

Local resident, Pat Kenny will be presenting 'Celebrity Ready Steady Cook' in aid of LauraLynn, Ireland's First Children's Hospice. There will also be seafood cookery demonstrations, market-stalls, street-buskers as well as a Boat Ballet!

Not forgetting!... the King of Dalkey... long live the King! who is making a comeback.

For non subjects!... let it be known, His majesty's title is: "King of Dalkey, Emperor of the Muglins, Prince of the Holy Island of Magee, Baron of Bulloch, Seigneur of Sandycove, Defender of the Faith and Respector of All Others, Elector of Lambay and Ireland's Eye, and Sovereign of the Most Illustrious Order of the lobster and the periwinkle.

Amazingly, there's also a chance to win an Aston Martin V8 Vantage!... kindly donated by Fastway Couriers. The terrific prize is in aid of badly needed funds for a new orthopaedic unit in Crumlin Children's Hospital. For further details, also visit the festival's facebook below and

As the slogan say's, come along for the lobster, crab and all that jazz. For information visit the Dalkey Lobster Festival's facebook page and for more about the Heritage town of Dalkey
