Volune 1, Issue 3 (June 2012): With the Euro 2012 football championship just around the corner, De\Code took on a look inspired by the Panini Stick albums of our youth,with a cover feature on Ireland’s two venues, Poznan and Gdansk. Sadly, things were all over for Ireland well before the July issue appeared over the horizon. Nevertheless, our careful balance of music, theatre, travel, opinion and great things to do across Ireland should still reveal plenty of interest:
