gifted to the gallery by artist and writer Brian Lalor in 2014, a col­lec­tion that ef­fec­tively charts the development of print­mak­ing from the 16th cen­tury on­wards. Other works ac­quired by gift or pur­chase in­clude pieces by Fer­nand Lèger, Wal­ter Os­borne, Berthe Morisot and Michael Far­rell. RE­TURN Gran­daddy It takes gump­tion for a once very suc­cess­ful band to at­tempt a come­back fol­low­ing a six-year ab­sence, but from 2012 this Cal­i­for­nia act (be­low) – best known for their in­die psy­che­delic rock al­bums Un­der the Western Free­way (1997) and The Sopht­ware Slump (2000) – has grasped the net­tle with lit­tle care for the ac­com­pa­ny­ing stings. Loyal and hard­core fans swill come out in force for this one. ART So Near & So Far: Roscom­mon in the 1980s – Pho­tographs by Martin Parr. known for his sharply ob­ser­vant eye and abil­ity to pin down so­cial fash­ions and con­ven­tions, lived in Boyle from 1981-1983. The pho­tographs in this show date from the pe­riod. They of­fer an in­sight into Ire­land as was, record­ing the grow­ing im­pact of rel­a­tive pros­per­ity – and Amer­i­can­i­sa­tion. They formed the sub­stance of his third book, A Fair Day. sub­lime melodic, moody house for the past decade or so. He’s also done won­ders for oth­ers too, with his Lost & Found la­bel show­cas­ing the work of peo­ple like Kevin Yost, Funk D’Void, Eelke Kleijn, Sa­har Z and Brian Cid. He’s also found a lot of fans for his own pro­duc­tions, es­pe­cially with The Trees, The Sea & The Sun al­bum for Bedrock. Sup­port from Mulljoy and Stephen Flynn, with Moody­beats at large in the Gar­den.
