** Notes on Limerick City, home of the Artist named above: 

Limerick was chosen as the country’s first-ever Irish City of Culture in 2014 (a designation to be awarded to an Irish city for 12 months every two years), with a packed program of arts, cultural and sporting events. It also has an intriguing, newly renovated castle, a lively art museum and contemporary cafe culture, to go with its uncompromised pubs, as well as locals who go out of their way to welcome you.

The city is compact enough to get around on foot or by bike. To walk across town from St Mary’s Cathedral to the train station takes about 15 minutes.

    Looks like things are progressing. After rewatching Quirke and The Fall, I wouldn’t mind seeing Aesling Franciosa in some sort of role. I thought she was excellent in both, and very different performances. The wives of many in the 1916 Rising were also involved, including Katherine Clarke who lost both a husband and a brother. Hopefully this will be an opportunity to see both a great movie and some wonderful actors.

    I saw Laura Donnelly in Outlanders and I was really impressed with her acting skills. In Outlanders her character was a strong woman defending her land and principles, nothing like in Merlin or the Fall. I think she should be part of the cast.
