This week would be very bleak indeed if it wasn’t for two festivals! First off we have the Mental Health festival called First Fortnight, which is a multi disciplinary festival taking in all sorts for the next two weeks. The other one in question is the Dublin Bowie Festival which has some really unusual events such as a talk with Enda Walsh at the Sugar Club.

The IMMA Collection Freud Project is a must see! There’s also a new Hughie O’Donoghue exhibition at the Oliver Sears gallery.
