Winter of Heritage

Ever wanted to hear the history of Cabinteely House or Marlay House, or see some spectacular Celtic Revival Art?  Take a step back in time with the Winter of Heritage free guided tours until March 3.

Among the highlights are the James Joyce Tower - the most famous building in world literature where James Joyce’s masterpiece begins and The Oratory - a tiny building that is home to some of the most spectacular artwork from the first half of 20th Century Ireland.

Disconnected at The New Theatre

 ‘Disconnected’ continues at The New Theatre (43 East Essex Street, Temple Bar) until February 2 at 7.30pm nightly.

When appearance is no longer enough she dares to dig a little deeper and with it, risks everything.

 Tickets: €17 (€14 concession). Show Length: 70 minutes. For more information, visit www.thenewtheatre.com

In Course of Rearrangement

A new exhibition, 'In Course of Rearrangement' by Marielle MacLeman, has opened at the LAB Gallery on Foley Street, Dublin 1.

 Two hundred years after the Earl of Meath was told a greater return could be made growing grass than collecting weaver’s rents, Dublin City Council was developing green spaces for the Buddleja-infested sites, as the title borrowed from museology suggests, in course of rearrangement. 

 MacLeman articulates the interrelationship of inner city built and natural environments through materials inspired by or directly sourced in the area. The exhibition continues until March 10.

Jurassic Skies 

An exhibition, entitled ‘Jurassic Skies’, has opened at the National Museum of Ireland. 

‘Jurassic Skies’ tells the story of the evolution of flight, offering visitors the opportunity to view a number of important, rarely seen fossils from the National Museum of Ireland’s collections.

The focal point of the exhibition is the Archaeopteryx, a small dinosaur with special feathers shaped to catch the wind.

‘Jurassic Skies’ is a temporary exhibition at National Museum of Ireland – Decorative Arts & History, Collins Barracks, and runs until March 24. For more information, visit www.museum.ie
