CluedUpp is the exciting detective game that's just like a giant, outdoor version of the board game Cluedo - and it's happening in Cork on the 8 June 2019!
The Cork version of the game is called Sneaky Finders and is set in the fictitious town of Millingham. Your team of detectives will be tasked with cracking the case as you stalk the streets, tracking down virtual witnesses and eliminating suspects.

Dare to go bold on your wedding day with a cheeky red lip!
Every bride wants to be unique in her own way and if you wish to do this with a dash of colour, maybe a red lip is the way for you...but what red to wear? You want it to last the day and also not rub off or smudge.

There are lots of reasons as to why Lisbon has become my favourite city and it’s not simply because of its exterior beauty. A thriving community lives in the city centre which feeds into the heartbeat and provides its magic. Just off the main through fares you’ll find narrow residential streets, tiny shops and modest cafes which all serve the local residents.
Lisbon is an inclusive city. The locals are genuine, friendly and polite and in almost all restaurants, bars and shops people will do their best to communicate with you.
Lisbon is an exceptional venue for your wedding and mine wasn’t just a wedding day, it was a ‘wedding experience’ born out of my own and my wife’s love for Lisbon and wanting our family and friends to share all that love with us.
The districts within the city are quite different and I’ll explain them to you so that you and your guests get the most out of your wedding experience too.

Your wedding invitations are the first glimpse your guests get into your wedding so make that first impression count. The most important thing to remember is that your wedding is all about you and your partner so it’s a good idea for your invitations to reflect your personalities.
Gone are the days of extravagant invites with layers of fancy paper, ribbons and lace… Now couples are choosing simple printed invitations that follow a theme that is close to their hearts. Think of special moments that you have spent together and what you love doing most. Maybe you love going for countryside walks… If so, then your invitations could incorporate a nature element.
