A MOST TENDER TUG OF WAR

Sorcha Frances Ryder (b. 1998) is a Dublin-based visual artist and fine art photographer. Enda Burke is an artist based in Galway City. His practice is a meeting point between set design, storytelling and photography.
WALKING EDGES by Donal Kelly
“Walking Edges” is a photographic exploration of place and belonging drawn from hundreds of walks along Ireland’s Atlantic edgescapes. Accumulated over years, the slow hours spent in quiet spaces and the wait-inducing processes of analogue photography reflects the gradual depositing of geological and historical layers, and the ever shifting boundaries and transitions of restless coasts that refuse to sit still within the confines of a precise map.
Laura Buckley: Painting with light
This exhibition will feature a number of Laura Buckley’s sculptural installations and all of the works in the show are being exhibited in Ireland for the first time ever. Painting With Light is Laura’s first solo exhibition at any public gallery in Ireland, and it’s very fitting that this show is happening in her birth county of Galway, a place she loved. Laura was born in Tuam, Co Galway in 1977 and died in London in 2022.

A wide selection of world-class authors as well as introducing compelling new voices and debut writers
Computer and Communications Museum of Ireland
CCMI have spent much of the last year revamping this national treasure putting in place new thematic displays including a games zone with original Xbox consoles connected on a pre-broadband LAN (Local Area Network) to allow multiple players on one game. One of the new exhibitions is devoted to Apple Computer, highlighting different periods in the company’s history including the late 1970s to the mid 1980s with the themes of innovation, creativity, youth and counterculture.
