Culture Night 2013!

The Library is delighted to once again take part in the College's Culture Night offerings this coming Friday.

 We will have on display some fascinating items from our Special Collections including:

  • Rare books and personal items of figures such as Dan Breen and Michael Davitt
  • Beautiful Dolmen Press publications, previously displayed in IMMA's 2010 The Moderns: The Arts in Ireland from 1900 to the 1970's exhibition
  • The first picture book ever published as Gaeilge
  • Rare Irish language manuscripts from the College Archive
We'll be situated in Belvedere House where there will also be tours of the old building as well as a jazz-inspired perfomance from our artists-in-residence the Fidelio Trio at 6:30pm.  

We'll be there (along with the books) from 5:15pm onwards so pop along and say hello!
