Everyone, Everywhere, Everyday is an illustrated journey through the north and south of inner city Dublin. Inspired by Ulysses, James Joyce, it traces part of the journey Leopold Bloom makes through the streets. Starting on the north side with the Oval public house on Abbey street to Lower O’Connell street to Bachelor’s walk crossing over to O’Connell street bridge and following on to south side locations Westmoreland street and finishing on College street. Applying the idea of the flâneur observing city life and acting as a witness to each scene drawn and photographed on of different perspectives. Working from these twelve illustrations were made which show the exterior urban spaces, streets and people of each place and interior view points from a cafe, bus window and various shops. The idea of this exhibition is to visually capture the energy and the ‘stream of life’ of contemporary Dublin.
For over 20 years, nothing has carried the energy, the sensuality and the spectacle of Riverdance. The worldwide phenomenon which is Riverdance began its journey as the interval act in the 1994 Eurovision Song Contest, produced for television by Moya Doherty.

With its fusion of Irish and International music and dance, the show broke all box office records during its world première run in Dublin and has continued to set new records in packed theatres and arenas throughout the world. www.riverdance.com – Since 1995 Riverdance has played 11,500 performances and been seen live by over 25 million people in over 467 venues worldwide in 47 countries across 6 continents – Travelled 750,000 miles (or to the moon and back and back again!) – Played to a global television audience of 3 billion people – Sold over 3 million copies of the Grammy Award-winning CD and 10 million Riverdance videos & DVD
The Snapper offers a wickedly funny account of the ups and downs of family life and pregnancy in Northside Dublin of the late 1980s. It is salty and sweet and the Gate Theatre sits right next door to the Rotunda Hospital where Sharon’s baby ‘the snapper’ is born. Roddy Doyle’s second installment of the celebrated Barrytown Trilogy is a story that remains fresh, vivid, astute and relevant for today.

Michael hasn’t been home in almost twenty years. Having been kicked out of the seminary and exiled from his family home, he found himself in London, by accident rather than design. But now, the death of his mother sees him back in the small town where he grew up. The place that chewed him up and spat him out. Reunited with his two brothers, their partners and the local clergy, there are questions that want answering and old scores that need laying to rest. Where do you find home, when your family and faith have abandoned you? An Irish funeral brings out the best and worst in people, and a long night of truths lies ahead.

Jimmy’s Hall tells the true story of Leitrim farmer Jimmy Gralton, the only Irishman deported from his own country. His crime was to build a dance hall where he encouraged the local community to learn, to argue and to dream, but above all to dance and have fun. As the hall grew in popularity its free-spirited reputation brought it to the attention of the church and politicians who forced Jimmy to flee and the hall to close. A decade later, at the height of the Depression, Jimmy returns from the US. The hall stands abandoned but as Jimmy sees the poverty and growing oppression in the village, the leader and activist within him is stirred. He decides to reopen the hall, and so takes on the established authorities of the church and the government.
