From February until Easter, Dublin will become home to the biggest Easter egg hunt in the history of the state and it will all be in aid of the Jack and Jill Foundation proudly sponsored by Lily O’Brien’s. Over 100 fibre glass eggs, will be secreted around the capital. Each one of the eggs are 2 ½ ft in height and decorated by well known artisans. Big artist names decorating the eggs include Guggi, Felim Egan, Rasher, John Rocha, Ireland’s newest music sensation the Strypes to household names like 2fm’s Joe Duffy, Rick O’Shea & Cormac Battle.
The eggs will go on display on Pancake Tuesday 12th February for 40 days and 40 nights across Dublin. The locations of the eggs will not be revealed, it’s up to you to find the two and half foot eggs. It’s a family affair. Get the family involved in the Big Egg Hunt, all they have to do is find twenty eggs, each egg has a code which you have to identify to enter the draw for a grand prize (diamonds for Mum sponsored by Diamant.ie, chocolate factory visit for kids, and a year’s supply of chocolate from Lily O’ Brien’s) it’s fun and easy.
The eggs will then be auctioned for charity in aid of the Jack and Jill Foundation.
