Celebrating ‘the building Parson’ – June 11th @ 6.30pm

 Thursday the East Wall Community will be celebrating the legacy of Canon DH Hall , the ‘building Parson’. Between 1921 and 1926 Canon Hall of the St Barnabas Parish was responsible for the building of 170 houses in the North Strand and East Wall. These innovative houses not only radically changed the local community but inspired a movement of ‘self help’ housing across the country and influenced the City housing policy.
On the feast day of  Saint Barnabas , we will unveil a plaque at St Barnabas Gardens (off West Road, East Wall) , where the first 10 houses he built still stand.
 Afterwards Dr Ruth McManus (Head of Geography at St Patricks College) will give a talk on the story of Canon Hall and his significant role in providing an alternative to the slums and tenements which were very much part of the area and city at this time.

At a time when the City of Dublin continues to experience a housing crisis and many are still enduring sub-standard homes it is appropriate to celebrate a genuine effort  “to render happy the lives of many who were existing under conditions too awful to be described.”

RHYTHMS OF A PORT

A Film Installation 

Photo Ireland Festival 2014

5 star 

   You are warmly invited to the Rhythms of a Port-invite Opening Reception Tuesday 1st July at 6pm   Sea Tunes provided by Eoin Kenny, Sean Fitzpatrick, Ceoltóirí Chluain Tarbh and John Nolan     The Red Brick Shed on Sir John Rogerson’s Quay  at the junction with Lime Street, beside the Samuel Beckett Bridge, Dublin 2 http://2014.photoireland.org/program/moira-sweeney/

Set in an imposing redbrick warehouse beside the Samuel Beckett Bridge on Sir John Rogerson’s Quay, the audiovisual artwork Rhythms of a Port intertwines the stories and memories of dockworkers, boatmen and port managers with personal reflections and insights on dock life from the artist. Multiple screens hang from the rafters, bringing a former dry cargo store to life and reminding us that the vibrant hub of Dublins’ working docks was once close to the heart of the city. Descriptions of contemporary reality on the docks contrast with its history and illustrate an evolving way of life. Arresting industry visuals are amplified by the rugged harmonies of forklift warnings, creaking wood and metal, squeaking ropes and pulleys, and seagulls.

The voices and surrounding sounds are the poetry of the everyday, the poetry of life. No drama here, but great beauty, a gentle pace allows you to soak it up….These custodians of the docks and surrounding sea are given the central voice, the “story” is told at a steady pace, steered by the camera and a keen listening ear. The rhythm of the piece, juxtaposed with the steel and industry of the port are beautifully realised.’

Argentina Flag Dresden Descendents Project – Proyecto Los Descendientes del Dresden  – June 11  2014

5 star

A project has now been launched in Ireland and Argentina to try and recover some of the history of these emigrants whose experience has been largely forgotten. In hIs recent expression of moral support for the Dresden Descendents Project – Proyecto Los Descendientes del Dresden Councillor Máirtín Ó Muilleoir Lord Mayor of Belfast noted with great interest “that many emigrants who undertook that arduous sea journey in 1889 on board the SS Dresden from Cobh to Argentina in the hope of a better life, also came from Northern Ireland”. “Projects that engage in the recovery of memory of our Irish Argentine diaspora can only enhance contemporary knowledge of their experience and will assist descendents to proactively reclaim their own history otherwise the narrative surrounding the largest group of Irish immigrants to enter Argentina during the last century could be forgotten”. He said: “On behalf of the City of Belfast I am pleased to offer my moral support for your endeavour” and conveyed his best wishes from the people of Belfast to the extended Irish community in Argentina. In this regard a declaration of moral support from principals in Ireland would be a tremendous help towards encouraging families who are descendents of those who emigrated to Argentina on board the SS Dresden to come forward and share their migratory history, which will help towards progressing our research efforts in Argentina and elsewhere. The Dresden Descendents Project http://www.steamshipdresden.com/   Paradise Lost “Lord Charlemonts Garden At Marino” – June the 10th 2014 The Irish Georgian Society are partnering with the OPW for their Annual Study Day, which will take place on June 10th in the City Assembly House.

Irish Citizen Army  – March 22nd   2014 @ Liberty Hall   Ann Matthews will be talking about the early years of the Irish Citizen Army at Saturday’s commemoration in Liberty Hall at 3pm based on new research that challenges many of our basic assumptions . Her play Lockout, which was performed to packed houses at the New Theatre in Dublin last year, is to feature in the Hollywood Fringe Festival in June. It will be performed by the DogParkTheatre Company at their new theatre in Los Angeles, CA. Its inaugural production, Aperture, premiered at Fringe 2013 earning nominations for Best Production, Best Actress and Best Writing. Award Winning Theatre company ANU Productions will also be performing on Saturday, along with Readings from Sean O’Casey’s Story of the Irish Citizen Army by Sabina Higgins and music by Des Geraghty and Friends.

International Women’s Day in Dublin and A Walk With Rosie – Saturday, March 8th 2014 This Saturday (March 8th) year a very small woman will cast a long shadow over International Women’s Day in Dublin, where a very successful campaign by Labour Youth activists has led to the naming of the new Luas Bridge across the River Liffey after Rosie Hackett, the 1913 and 1916 veteran, who was also a life long veteran trade unionist. There will be a Rosie Hackett Walk in the morning led by Mary Mulvihill of Ingenious Ireland starting at 10.50 am on the site of Jacob’s Biscuit factory beside the entrance of DIT, at the junction of Aungier Street, Bishop Street and Redmond’s Hill at 10.50 am. This will visit sites in the city linked with Rosie Hackett the 1913 Lockout and Easter Rising. A very successful trial run took place last Saturday, March 1st and hopefully the weather will be as gloriously sunny this weekend. Unfortunately it is already booked out but it is hoped to run similar walks during the coming summer season because of the demand. We will keep you posted Meanwhile there is a Night of Music & Spoken Word to celebrate the naming of the Rosie Hackett Bridge from 7pm until 10 pm at Cois Life Bar, Liberty Hall. MC Tara Flynn, actor/writer Music by Zrazy – All welcome and it’s free – although all donations will be graciously received – Proceeds to the IWWU Committee
