..what do you do? Are there any organised brunches or anything for people here on their own? - was thinking maybe at Irish Village or something?

Thanks Rowell.

i know most of the hotels do brunches, but i was thinking more along the lines of somewhere that organises something for those people who find themselves here by themselves on Christmas day, with all their friends away.

Irish Village always organise an Xmas Dinner, but it primarily caters for families and groups of friends. If you are going to be alone then I'm sure you will receive a few offers from the reprobates on here.

I should say at this point that it's not for me but am asking on behalf of a male friend who has no idea this is being cooked up

I would organize him a couple of filipinos. They love Christmas and would be delighted to be filled with some spirit on Christmas Morning.

Filipinos? OK, maybe I could go with that (well, once upon a time anyway)....but are you sure that filling them with Xmas spirit is what Ditzy's friend would appreciate?
