ART Against the Cur­rent Mark Dion Mark Dion’s ex­hi­bi­tion stems from a re­search res­i­dency in Lim­er­ick, and it con­cerns “the de­ple­tion of wild species in Ire­land’s rivers”. Dion is a con­cep­tual artist who fo­cuses on nat­u­ral history, field work and bi­ol­ogy, us­ing sculp­ture, in­stal­la­tion, pho­tog­ra­phy and print­mak­ing, and has built an in­ter­na­tional rep­u­ta­tion. He con­sid­ers the state of the River Shan­non and shows a large-scale piece, The Salmon of Knowl­edge Re­turns. JAZZ Prodi­gal Son Andreas Varady Trio

Slo­vakian-born guitarist Andreas Varady (above) re­lo­cated to Lim­er­ick with his fam­ily in 2007 at the age of nine. Soon af­ter, word be­gan to fil­ter out of a jazz gui­tar prodigy with su­per­nat­u­ral abil­ity liv­ing by the Shan­non. Now a vet­eran aged 16, the word has spread and Varady is an in­ter­na­tional star, tour­ing with Ge­orge Ben­son and man­aged by Quincy Jones. Here’s a rare chance to hear him in Ire­land, with his fa­ther Bandi on bass.
