The Vaughan Bequest of Turner Watercolours

On 25 January 1900, a resolution was passed by the Governors and Guardians of the National Gallery of Ireland which ‘gratefully accepted’ Henry Vaughan’s bequest of 31 watercolours and drawings by J.M.W. Turner RA. Vaughan was a wealthy English collector who died in 1899, aged 90. His valuable art collections were distributed among various public institutions. His prized Turner watercolours were divided between the National Galleries in London, Dublin and Edinburgh.
He was concerned for the long-term safety of the works and stipulated that they should only be shown in January and provided a cabinet for their safe storage when not on display. The Gallery undertook to ‘comply with the conditions laid down by Vaughan’s will for the management and exhibition of the drawings’ and this year’s showing continues what has become tradition much loved by visitors.

U2 1978-1981 Photographs by Patrick Brocklebank

U2 manager Paul McGuinness will open U2: 1978-81 at the Little Museum of Dublin Thursday, May 10th. The exhibition features 33 rare early photographs of U2. It’s the first time that the photographs have ever been exhibited, and the show is already the subject of massive international interest.

U2: 1978-81 reveals the early U2 as a tight but restless unit – future icons but also teenagers mucking around. The photographs were taken by Dubliner Patrick Brocklebank, who worked as a graphic artist and photographer in the 1970s. “Because I was always in town,” recalls Brocklebank, “and because we were the same age, I’d often see U2 around the place. The show records the energy and ambition of a local band that would later conquer the world.”

Mucking around in Trinity College or gigging in the Project, the images reveal the relentless surge of a band on the rise. Pots, guns and paintings are used as props, and Bono proves himself a serial scene-stealer. “Paul [Bono] couldn’t play guitar,” recalls Brocklebank, “and he wasn’t much of a singer, but he had that certain something: the swagger and stage presence that would later make U2 a household name.”

U2: 1978-81 will run at the Little Museum of Dublin until September 1st 2012. The exhibition is sponsored by Jägermeister. The Little Museum is the new people’s museum of Dublin. The museum is open every day from 11am until 6pm.
Price €3.00 to €5.00

The House

Christy has returned home from England for the summer. His first visit is to his neighbours the de Burca family. Old Mrs de Burca and her three daughters each have their own unique relationship with Christy.

Meanwhile in Bunty’s bar Christy’s fellow emigrants Peter and Goldfish swallow pints and share stories of their lives abroad. For them, this is precisely the drink-fuelled homecoming they have saved up for. For Christy, the stakes are higher this time.

Tom Murphy returns to the topic of the emigrant in this tragic tale of the search for home. Set in 1950s Ireland, this play which was commissioned and first staged by the Abbey in 2000, takes on a new resonance in Ireland of today.

The Plough and The Stars

The Plough and the Stars returns following its huge success on the Abbey stage in 2010.

Set in a tenement house, against the backdrop of the Easter Rising in 1916, The Plough and the Stars is both an intimate play about the lives of ordinary people and an epic play about ideals and the birth of our nation.

Amidst the tumult of political upheaval, Jack and Nora Clitheroe are ‘like two turtle doves always billing and cooing’, much to the ridicule of their bustling neighbours. But when Ireland calls, Jack must choose between love for his wife and duty to his country.
Heartbreaking, disturbing and very funny, The Plough and The Stars is an historic play that every generation needs to see.

Wayne Jordan, Associate Director of the Abbey Theatre, brings the fresh perspective of a new generation to this iconic play.
