Funkshot Masquerade Halloween Party
On Saturday 26th October, Funkshot are hosting a Masquerade Halloween Party at The Lost Society, Powerscourt Town House, South William Street, Dublin.
Admission is Free – but only those in masquerade or fancy dress will get in!
The theme of the party is ‘The Hell Fire Club’ named after the infamous club of the same name, which was active in the years 1735 to 1741. The club was founded in 1737 by Richard Parsons, 1st Earl of Rosse.
The club quickly developed a reputation for hard drinking, excess and debauchery!
Originally, the club was based at the Eagle Tavern near Dublin Castle but migrated on occasion to Montpelier Hill in the Dublin Mountains, where the ruins of the Hellfire Club can be seen to this day.
More than a few legends have grown up around The Hellfire Club, including the appearance of the devil at one of their notorious drinking sessions… who knows, he might make a reappearance……..?
