Event– Irish Famine Exhibition Dublin (more dates)

Location- Stephen’s Green Shopping Centre

Description- The Irish Potato Famine was the most catastrophic event in Ireland’s turbulent history. It is also regarded as being one of the worst Famines in history (deaths as a proportion to population). The use of the word ‘Famine’ in this context is controversial, for Ireland at the time was part of the richest Empire in the World (the British Empire). There was sufficient food in the country throughout the ‘Famine’ years, yet over a million people died from starvation and disease, and millions more were forced to flee.

Some historians prefer to use the name ‘Great Hunger’ to describe this period of mass death from starvation and disease.

This exhibition tells the story of what happened during those horrific years. We use rare 19th century photographs, witness accounts, contemporary sketches as well as maps and statistical information. A 15 minute film with seating is included in the exhibition and the average time spent by visitors is 1 hour.

Cost- Students€6, Adults €10

Time- Open 7 days, 12pm to 5:15pm (Entry at any time during this timeframe)

Event– Prodigies of Learning (more dates)

This exhibition celebrates their important contributions to learning and knowledge in the nineteenth-century.

Cost- Free

Time- 10.00-17.00

Thursday

Event– Docklands – The New Old Dublin (weekly event)

Time- 10.30-12.30

Event– A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Location- Rough Magic Theatre Comapny, Georges St

Description- Rough Magic’s dynamic new ensemble of actors and designers will electrify Shakespeare’s iconic characters, incandescent language and timeless comedy.

The crazy recklessness of mankind in the face of an ecosystem we understand imperfectly is the focus of this new production; where magic is embodied in the natural forces of electricity, magnetism, and elemental power.

The play deals with the dark sexuality of dreams, the supernatural, the mythic. Rough Magic will connect it to the here and now, a modern Ireland in the centre of global upheaval, a topsy-turvy universe, where the laws of physics have begun to warp.

We will follow the lovers and the mechanicals as they journey into the dominion of the spirit world, and emerge from its narcotic delights into a glimmering of self-knowledge. And we celebrate with them, as night falls on their act of rebellion against the darkness, in a daft, joyous, gloriously funny piece of theatre.

Cost- €26

Time- 20.00

Friday

The sounds and vibrations of singing bowls and chimes guide us into a deep meditation. The healing vibrations pass through our body, opening blo

ckages and allowing our minds to quiet.
