Could You Be Crowned Dublin’s Champion At This Emoji Spelling Bee Contest?


Do you express yourself mostly in shy little monkey symbols and a variety of smiling or sad yellow faces?

And now, fellow emoji appreciators, there will be a deadly Emoji event in Dublin’s newest hang-out spot, Token in Smithfield.

Here’s what’s happenin’…
