I'm thinking about that talk this morning and it really was first class. The amount of years and work those lads put into identifying the graves, compiling the family histories of the dead and then getting the council on board to erect gravestones and mark the graves. I just can't get over the commitment and dedication.

The slides and maps on the presentation were wonderful.

This huge effort will put Deansgrange Cemetery on the map as a "must visit" tourist destination, not only for this celebration in 2016 but for future generations.

The Garda Band will give a public performance on the east pier Dun laoghaire on Sunday 14th August at 2 30 pm in aid of Guide dogs for the blind.

( coincidentally the Garda band gave its first public performance on Dun Laoghaire pier on Easter Monday 1923).

Was there yesterday and they were brill, But..............there's always a But :P .......... No benches ? only one close to the Bandstand a few up the steps under the canopy but to far back to see the Band, and also the floor of the Band stand seems to be very low :shock: so the Garda Band looked as if they were in a hole dontknow just saying

I'm not really moaning-ish, everybody to his own and all that but as a painter I really don't get some of this abstract work, I think an abstract work should at least portray a logical meaning in the paintings, if you know what I mean?
I mean how does this painting below "explores geographical elements of Dun Laoghaire, or a psychological profile of the people of the area"?
Do you honestly "see" ANY such significance here?

Personally speaking, it seems that it would have benefitted from a few extra days of sun, for the vitality provided by those spiritually life-affirming rays may have been sufficient enough as to knock the slightly hard finish from the final painting, a finish that while not so harsh as to desecrate the vista like a pagan at a holy shrine, nevertheless infusess it with a complex and closely-knit structure. However, it must be recorded that this structure shall unpick in time, like the weaving of Penelope as she awaited the return of her Odysseus lost for so long upon the ocean, which will undoubtedly aid the already-improving visage until the colours are virtually fit to explode from the canvas like a gaudy volcano of precious orchids to delectably assault the eyes in the most seductive fashion.

Well I taut I new notin about art either but, to me it looks like a couple of sperm under a microscope. He must have interviewed some tortured souls to come up with that.

I think you are all being unfair to this Artist. After all, as the blurb says . . .

" . . .The work responds to the modern town and what it means to the community . . ."

I for one believe his work is a perfect reflection of the modern town.

I don't agree Michael, I have looked, searched even into this body of work for some recognition of something about the area and still I cannot find anything significant that relates. Being unfair to the Artist? Sorry but that goes with the territory. If you hang your work on walls to be scrutinised by the public and don't expect to be criticised then don't hang your work on walls to be scrutinised. :D
If you can explain what you see it may give us a little more understanding.
