According to John McDonald, organiser of Invasion Dublin: “Nowhere else in the world will you ever be able to fulfill your Star Wars dreams….sitting side by side with the Emperor himself. There were three Invasion events last year, each one attracting over 12,000 visitors who witnessed the craftmanship of the props and the detail and quality of the character costumes. This is the first time that Invasion has come to the RDS and it is sure to be a great day out for all the family, a fun experience and the atmosphere will be electric”
