The Irish Potato Famine

The Irish Potato Famine Date: Monday 15 April, 2019 through Tuesday 15 October, 2019.
Time: Times Vary
Location: Stephen's Green Shopping Centre
Address: Dublin (Ath Cliath)
Category: Educational
The Irish Potato Famine
Stephen's Green Shopping Centre, Floor 2., Monday 15th April - Tuesday 15th October 2019
The Irish Potato Famine was the most catastrophic event in Ireland's turbulent history. It is also regarded as being one of the worst Famines in history (deaths as a proportion to population). The use of the word ‘Famine' in this context is controversial, for Ireland at the time was part of the richest Empire in the World (the British Empire). There was sufficient food in the country throughout the ‘Famine' years, yet over a million people died from starvation and disease, and millions more were forced to flee. Some historians prefer to use the name ‘Great Hunger' to describe this period of mass death from starvation and disease.

This exhibition tells the story of what happened during those horrific years. Rare 19th century photographs, witness accounts, contemporary sketches as well as maps and statistical information are used. A 15 minute film with seating is included in the exhibition and the average time spent by visitors is 1 hour. This exhibition is dedicated to all victims of the Irish Potato Famine or The Great Hunger.

Admission
Adult €10 | Senior €9 | Student €7
Family ticket €25 (2 adults 2 children under 16) | Groups (10 persons+) €8 per person.
Under 12's accompanied by an Adult – Free | Exhibition not suitable for children under 6.

Macy Gray
The Sugar Club, Friday 19th July - Saturday 20th July 2019
Macy Gray has been overturning fan expectation and industry formula since kicking off her music career with her debut 1999 CD, On How Life Is. A gifted songwriter and dazzlingly singular singer, that musical calling card spawned the classic single I Try, and both the CD and single were massive global hits. They kicked off a career ride that includes two Grammys, two MTV awards, with over 25 million units sold, and a thriving acting career.

What awards and sales figures fail to illustrate is the depth and breadth of Macy's artistry. In an industry increasingly stifled of real artists, she's forged her own vision, creating music that leaps genre barriers from experimental soul to alternative rock, from retro-disco to hip-hop. Her artistic integrity and innovation has won her fans across the world, including artists such as John Frusciante, Erykah Badu, Gang Starr, Mos Def, and Pharoah Monche, all of whom she has collaborated with.

The Irish Potato Famine
Stephen's Green Shopping Centre, Floor 2., Monday 15th April - Tuesday 15th October 2019
The Irish Potato Famine was the most catastrophic event in Ireland's turbulent history. It is also regarded as being one of the worst Famines in history (deaths as a proportion to population). The use of the word ‘Famine' in this context is controversial, for Ireland at the time was part of the richest Empire in the World (the British Empire). There was sufficient food in the country throughout the ‘Famine' years, yet over a million people died from starvation and disease, and millions more were forced to flee. Some historians prefer to use the name ‘Great Hunger' to describe this period of mass death from starvation and disease.

This exhibition tells the story of what happened during those horrific years. Rare 19th century photographs, witness accounts, contemporary sketches as well as maps and statistical information are used. A 15 minute film with seating is included in the exhibition and the average time spent by visitors is 1 hour. This exhibition is dedicated to all victims of the Irish Potato Famine or The Great Hunger.

Admission
Adult €10 | Senior €9 | Student €7
Family ticket €25 (2 adults 2 children under 16) | Groups (10 persons+) €8 per person.

Gaiety Theatre, Tuesday 11th June - Sunday 15th September 2019
Riverdance burst onto the world stage 25 years ago, on the 30th April 1994, as part of the Eurovision Song Contest. The response from the thousands of people witnessing it in person at the Point Depot and the international audience watching on TV, was extraordinary. This 7-minute routine was to change the face of Irish dance forever.

Since 1995 Riverdance has:

Played 11,500 performances and been seen live by over 25 million people in over 467 venues worldwide in 47 countries across 6 continents.
Travelled 750,000 miles (or to the moon and back and back again!).
Played to a global television audience of 3 billion people.
Sold over 3 million copies of the Grammy Award-winning CD and 10 million videos & DVDs.
A visit to Dublin is not complete without experiencing the energy and the spectacle of Riverdance in its home-town, back where it all began. A return to the historical Gaiety Theatre in the heart of Dublin City for the summer season.

Macy Gray
The Sugar Club, Friday 19th July - Saturday 20th July 2019
Macy Gray has been overturning fan expectation and industry formula since kicking off her music career with her debut 1999 CD, On How Life Is. A gifted songwriter and dazzlingly singular singer, that musical calling card spawned the classic single I Try, and both the CD and single were massive global hits. They kicked off a career ride that includes two Grammys, two MTV awards, with over 25 million units sold, and a thriving acting career.

What awards and sales figures fail to illustrate is the depth and breadth of Macy's artistry. In an industry increasingly stifled of real artists, she's forged her own vision, creating music that leaps genre barriers from experimental soul to alternative rock, from retro-disco to hip-hop. Her artistic integrity and innovation has won her fans across the world, including artists such as John Frusciante, Erykah Badu, Gang Starr, Mos Def, and Pharoah Monche, all of whom she has collaborated with.

Burt Bacharach – Live at the Iveagh Gardens
Iveagh Gardens, Saturday 20th July 2019
Burt Bacharach Live in Concert – with special guest Paddy Hanna.

The Hitmaker is returning to Dublin. Renowned for hits such as I'll Never Fall in Love Again, Anyone Who Had A Heart, The Look of Love, I Say A Little Prayer and Walk On By, Burt is the recipient of three Academy Awards and eight Grammy Awards.

Six decades into one of songwriting's most successful and honoured careers – marked by 48 Top 10 hits, nine #1 songs, more than 500 compositions and a landmark 50+ year run on the charts, Burt Bacharach's music continues to set industry records and creative standards. His global audiences span several generations, and he is viewed as the unique combination of one of the greatest composers of all time and the ultra-cool cult hero of the contemporary music set who often has several songs on various music charts in many countries simultaneously. He tours the world conducting orchestras with his own musicians and singers performing his music at his sold-out concerts.

Bacharach is a legend of popular music and his songs have been recorded by legendary singers, such as Frank Sinatra, The Beatles, Barbra Streisand, Neil Diamond, Linda Ronstadt, Dionne Warwick and Aretha Franklin. Other tributes to the diversity of Bacharach's music have been paid by, among others, Elvis Costello (I'll Never Fall in Love Again and God Give Me Strength), REM, Diana Krall, Barenaked Ladies, Sheryl Crow, and Wynonna Judd.

The Irish Potato Famine

The Irish Potato Famine Date: Monday 15 April, 2019 through Tuesday 15 October, 2019.
Time: Times Vary
Location: Stephen's Green Shopping Centre
Address: Dublin (Ath Cliath)
Category: Educational
The Irish Potato Famine
Stephen's Green Shopping Centre, Floor 2., Monday 15th April - Tuesday 15th October 2019
The Irish Potato Famine was the most catastrophic event in Ireland's turbulent history. It is also regarded as being one of the worst Famines in history (deaths as a proportion to population). The use of the word ‘Famine' in this context is controversial, for Ireland at the time was part of the richest Empire in the World (the British Empire). There was sufficient food in the country throughout the ‘Famine' years, yet over a million people died from starvation and disease, and millions more were forced to flee. Some historians prefer to use the name ‘Great Hunger' to describe this period of mass death from starvation and disease.

This exhibition tells the story of what happened during those horrific years. Rare 19th century photographs, witness accounts, contemporary sketches as well as maps and statistical information are used. A 15 minute film with seating is included in the exhibition and the average time spent by visitors is 1 hour. This exhibition is dedicated to all victims of the Irish Potato Famine or The Great Hunger.

Admission
Adult €10 | Senior €9 | Student €7
Family ticket €25 (2 adults 2 children under 16) | Groups (10 persons+) €8 per person.
Under 12's accompanied by an Adult – Free | Exhibition not suitable for children under 6.

After two sold-out tours of pubs across Ireland and the UK, Roddy Doyle’s ‘achingly, breathtakingly funny’ Two Pints is on a US Tour before taking to the stage this summer.

The hilarious and provocative Two Pints started as a conversation on Facebook. Now it’s a play.

Settle down and listen in as they chew the fat and set the world to rights.
