Theatre : ‘Men are from Stoneybatter, Women from Phibsboro’ at The New Theatre, Temple Bar

Large_01112011064954954954
Feb 7th – Feb 12th
Preview Monday 7th Feb, Matinee Sat 12th Feb
@8 pm, Matinee @ 2 pm
Tickets: €10 (Preview), €15, €12 (concs)

Witness the most powerful love story in modern times – this new comedy will take you on a journey through the early stages of Kate and Fionn’s relationship, from meeting each other’s mates to the introduction of Kate’s slightly unorthodox parents. Fionn is a man very unlucky in love but not to fear, he has his friends: Donal, the self acclaimed greatest Cork mind since Bill O’Herlihy and Steve, the man who could give Dr. Phil a run for his money. In Kate’s corner she has Amy, a girl who wanted to be a nun but unfortunately was a bit too loose for the job. Then there’s the all talk but little action confrontational Dee. And last but not least there’s Fran. You’d want to keep an eye on Fran. All is not what it seems!!!

So to recap: we have the girl, the boy, the slightly odd friends and the token odd parents which adds nicely to the mayhem.

Cue side splitting laughter (hopefully) and you’re in for a treat.

The Contemporary Music Centre presents The Art of Sound

cmc_logo

The Contemporary Music Centre here in Temple Bar presents The Art of Sound – a glimpse into the creativity of some Irish composers

To celebrate 25 years of the Contemporary Music Centre and as part of a series of events planned for 2011, The Contemporary Music Centre is showing a selection of its Art of Sound exhibition on an ongoing basis in its new Platform for Performance space in Fishamble Street.

The Art of Sound is a multi-media exhibition consisting of large panels with striking photos of composers, graphic scores and information on the composers. The exhibition is accompanied by an audio-guide, with music excerpts, narrated by Eamon Lawlor, RTÉ lyric fm. The panels and music on display are: Gerald Barry (Au Milieu); Barry Guy (Un coup de dés /A dice-throw); Mícheal Ó Súilleabháin (Oileán/Island); Deirdre Gribbin (Venus Blazing) and Judith Ring (Interference).

This exhibition is open to the public from 11am – 4pm, Monday to Friday. Admission is free and no booking is required.  It is envisaged that the panels on exhibit will rotate during the year and that other music related exhibitions will also be displayed in the Centre’s Platform for Performance space at intervals throughout the year.

“It is great to have these wonderful panels on display in our own building in Fishamble Street. We are encouraging people to call in and experience them and we hope that this might assist a wide cross section of the public in getting to know Irish composers and our Centre” says Karen Hennessy, Promotion Manager, The Contemporary Music Centre.

Devised by the Contemporary Music Centre in partnership with the Music Department of University College Cork, The Art of Sound exhibition was funded by Cork 2005: European Capital of Culture, with capital funding provided by the Arts Council/ An Chomhairle Ealaíon for the audio-guide system.  To date it has been on view in Cork County Museum as part of Cork 2005: European Capital of Culture; in Rothe House as part of the Kilkenny Arts Festival 2007; at the Contemporary Urban Centre during Liverpool European Capital of Culture 2008 and in the Civic Theatre, Tallaght, South County Dublin in 2008.

The Contemporary Music Centre is Ireland’s national archive, resource centre and promotional body for new music, supporting the work of Irish composers from the Republic and Northern Ireland. The Centre is supported by the Arts Council/An Chomhairle Ealaíon and the Arts Council of Northern Ireland.

For further information on the Art of Sound exhibition and the Centre’s new Platform for Performance space contact Karen Hennessy, Promotion Manager, The Contemporary Music Centre, 19 Fishamble Street, Temple Bar, Dublin 8. Tel: 01 6731922 Email khennessy@cmc.ie web site www.cmc.ie

Temple Bar Food Market on the Move from Saturday January 29th

TOtb

Temple Bar will be a vision of mouth-watering colour as the Temple Bar Food Market (TBFM) is moving from its Meeting House Square home to three new locations around Temple Bar. The TBFM Take Over will be temporarily held in the new locations from Saturday 29th January, to facilitate the construction of the new retractable canopy over Meeting House Square. This will consist of four large umbrellas which provide year-round cover for the outdoor movies programme, festivals, music, dance performances and markets which fill this city centre public space every year.

The Temple Bar Food Markets new locations are ‘Up-Town’ Old City, ‘Mid-Town’ East Essex Street and ‘Down-Town’ Curved Street which you can see on the map below.  The move will create a tempting gastronomic trail which foodies can meander through and enjoy the best of Irish produce alongside a host of cultural treats around the Temple Bar area.

TOmap

Temple Bar Food Market Take Over

Commenting on the move, Dermot McLaughlin, CEO Temple Bar Cultural Trust said “Our first Temple Bar Food Market was held in May 1997 and has become a Dublin institution increasing in popularity each year. The range of foods is unparalleled elsewhere in the city and we hope moving to these temporary locations around the area will entice people to explore areas of Temple Bar they may not have seen before..  We are extremely excited about the possibilities our new retractable canopy for Meeting House Square will bring and want to thank everyone for their patience during the installation period.”

‘Up-Town’ will offer a diverse range of fresh fruit and vegetables, ‘Mid-Town’ will be filled with stalls offering fresh hot food and ‘Down-Town’ will offer a range of stalls trading fresh Irish meats and freshly baked breads.

People can pick up fresh vegetables from Denis Healy who runs his own organic farm or the best apples in the city from Llewellyn’s Orchard Produce. Noirin’s Bakehouse and The French Bread Stall make mouths water with the smell of freshly baked goods which can be washed down with coffee from the Ariosa Coffee Roasting Coffee. Or try the best in Oriental street food at The Sushi Hut or a French treat from The Gallic Kitchen.

There will be a total of 28 traders relocating their stalls to the various locations until June where they will return to the newly covered Meeting House Square.

There’s a BigBelly in Temple Bar

photo 2

The BigBelly Solar Powered Compactor bin in Meeting House Square

Have you spotted  our new bins around Temple Bar? You will now find them in the following locations ; two in Meeting House Square,  two in Temple Bar Square, one on Curved Street with another on Cow’s Lane.

The BigBelly is completely self-powered, instead of requiring an electrical connection, BigBelly uses solar power for 100% of its energy needs. The unit takes up as much space as the footprint of an ordinary street bin but because of its compaction capability, it  can hold six to eight times more waste than the average street bin. Our neighbours in Trinity College have been using them since 2008 with resounding success.

BigBelly Bin no2. in Meeting House Square

BigBelly Bin no2. in Meeting House Square

Increased capacity reduces collection trips, fuel costs and greenhouse gas emissions by 80%. The number of collections can be reduced by up to 80% and the Big Belly system eliniates the costs of servicing empty bins.

So if you spot them, make sure to use them and here’s to a greener and cleaner 2011 in Temple Bar!
