Dundalk Lion’s Club Mobile Phone Appeal

On Thursday 2nd April 2015 the Dundalk Lion’s in association with Dundalk FM ran a coffee morning. We received 120 mobile phones and some people left in a donation. Thanks to the Home Bakery for the fantastic buns and cakes, we would also like to thank Marion and all the staff of the Community Offices, for keeping us supplied with coffee and tea. If you still would like to donate your old mobile phones to this great cause, you can leave them into Dundalk FM studio.

Blackrock Fix It Factory

Blackrock Fix It 2015

Blackrock Tidy Towns in association with the Louth County Council organised a Fix It Factory at the Community Centre on Saturday 21st March 2015.

As Larry Magnier describes in this interview with Padraig Quigley, the idea is to get people to think about recycling or ‘upcycling’ as he describes  it.

There were experts on hand to have a look at  furniture, musical instruments electronic and small electrical equipment, bicycles, jewellery, clothing and shoes as can be seen in our collage.

Bridgestone and McManus Tyres were also there to check your tyres and give you a written report.

There was free tea and coffee and fun activities for the children.

Launch of Brian Hegarty’s ‘I’ll be your mirror’ Exhibition at the Basement Gallery

I'll be your Mirror

The vinyl record is more than just a by word for cultural nostalgia. It has the capacity to trigger memories and convey emotion in the most personal way. It is weighted with symbolism, not just as a twentieth century artifact but also as a holder of many of life’s accumulated experiences. Love, loss, identity, ideology, all of life’s ingredients filtered through the treble and base of a turntable, an amplifier and speakers. This exhibition from Drogheda-based artist Brian Hegarty, I’ll Be Your Mirror (The Album Sleeve Project), was first shown in the Cartridge Gallery in Lapua, Finland in October 2014.

I’ll Be Your Mirror is an ongoing process that will see new works added each time the collection is shown, culminating in a final version of the project to be exhibited in the Ashford gallery in the Royal Hibernian Academy Dublin in 2016.

Runs until 4th April.
