Martin Parr: 40 Years of Photography in Ireland

 
Link here - https://www.discoverireland.ie/roscommon/martin-parr-40-years-of-photography-in-ireland

Since then he has returned many times to continue this work, during which time, he captured the changing Ireland and created a series of images that present the effects of wealth and Americanisation on the country.

To date this expansive series of images made in Ireland over a 40-year period has not been exhibited in its entirety. In 2021 this will no longer be the case as a new tour presenting all of Parr’s works exploring a variety of themes and events of historical and social significance in Ireland is planned.

A Wilde Fan


Link here - https://www.discoverireland.ie/kilkenny/a-wilde-fan

Beginning with studying ‘The Importance of Being Earnest’ for the Leaving Cert and exploring his many other works, Myles delves into Oscar’s incredible life story – one that has been a constant source of inspiration and obsession.

Wilde was an artist whose unique imagination and ideas on life, love and art are as modern today as when they were first written, and whose rapid rise to fame and scandalous down fall is still an example of how a society can turn on those who do not conform; a man of his time, but also of all time.

Lightning Bolts of Ordinary Things


Link here - https://www.discoverireland.ie/clare/lightning-bolts-of-ordinary-things

Lightning Bolts of Ordinary Things is an exhibition that brings together the work of two Clare based artists Kaye Maahs and Will O’Kane.

Both these artists’ paintings elevate the everyday, the ordinary, giving rise to works that convey both a sense of experience and memory that in turn transcends surface and meaning.

Kaye Maahs is an emerging Irish Artist living and working in County Clare. Through the language of paint Maahs’ paintings convey her journeys, her observations and her painterly concerns. Working primarily in oils Maahs’ work reflects the modern landscape, her affinity with nature and her passion for paint.

Will O’Kane was Born in Co.Mayo, and now lives and works Ennis, Co. Clare. O’Kane’s paintings employ a variety of methods. Changing styles depending on the subject matter, concept, or genre that he is engaged with.

Founded in 2005, the Clonakilty International Guitar Festival is a celebration of the guitar. It is not starch-collared or stuffy-nosed. From virtuosos to noodlers, all are welcomed and exalted!

We believe that there are two types of people in the world: those who play the guitar, and those who can't but want to! We aim to cater to both with recitals, workshops, seminars, street performances, school visits and informal sessions.

We are a multi-genre music festival, with an emphasis on Irish independent artists and international artists who have a reputation for an innovative approach to their practice.

Trim Castle

Link here - https://heritageireland.ie/places-to-visit/trim-castle/

Few places in Ireland contain more medieval buildings than the heritage town of Trim. Trim Castle is foremost among those buildings.

The central fortification is a monumental three-storey keep. This massive 20-sided tower, which is cruciform in shape, was all but impregnable in its day. It was protected by a ditch, curtain wall and water-filled moat.

Modern walkways now allow you to look down over the interior of the keep – a chance to appreciate the sheer size and thickness of the mighty castle walls.
 
The castle is often called King John’s Castle although when he visited the town he preferred to stay in his tent on the other side of the river. Richard II visited Trim in 1399 and left Prince Hal later Henry V as a prisoner in the castle.
 
Admission – Adults  €5, Children €3
