Aspects of Mícheál Mac Liammoir and the Dublin Gate Theatre

Micheál Mac Liammoir Exhibition on display at Dublin City Library and Archive, May to June 2018

Together with his partner Hilton Edwards, Mícheál Mac Liammoir was a giant of modern Irish Theatre. They founded the Dublin Gate Theatre in 1928 and this exhibition has been arranged to mark its 90th anniversary. Prodigiously talented, Mícheál was an accomplished artist, actor, playwright, set, stage and book designer, author and multi-lingual translator. He was born in London as Alfred Willmore but re-invented himself as an Irishman, becoming fluent in the Irish language and speaking English with a marked Co. Cork brogue.

Humans of Dublin - An exhibition

Humans of DublinJuly at Ballyfermot Library

Photographic Exhibition by Peter Varga. Two years ago, Peter Varga began a photo project that would change the course of his life. Inspired by the success of similar projects internationally, he began to walk the streets of Dublin, interviewing and photographing those he met along the way. The result is a remarkable series of portraits which capture the vibrancy and diversity of Dublin life.

Suffragist City: Women and the Vote in Dublin

SuffragistsMay in Inchicore Library

In February 1918 the Representation of the People Act was passed and women who were over 30 years of age were finally allowed to vote. Eleven months later, the voters of Dublin elected Constance Markievicz, the first woman to win a seat at Westminster. Suffragism was the conviction that votes should be extended to women. By the early years of the twentieth century, the suffrage campaign had gained sufficient momentum to be regularly debated in parliament. The 1910s was a decade of great social and political turbulence.

Around the Table Exhibition

Around the TableJuly in Inchicore Library

Around the Table, a Dublin Culture Connects project about food in Dublin connected with communities old and new across Dublin’s historic Central Area. An exhibition of photographs, taken by artist Jeanette Lowe over a five-month period as part of Dublin’s Culture Connects: National Neighbourhood, will be on view in the Central Library (Ilac Centre) until the end of June. This project worked collaboratively with communities, artists and The National Library of Ireland tracing the passage of food from the docks to the markets and from our streets to our tables.

The images on display reflect strong communities built on camaraderie and loyalty forged through work, through shared interests and passions, through family ties and through networks of support. They reflect the life generated by the food we buy, cook and share moving through the city.
