Welcome to the Neighbourhood
Askeaton Civic Trust, Askeaton, Co Limerick July 15 askeatonarts.com For just over a decade, Askeaton Contemporary Arts have been turning the small North Limerick town into one big art gallery – some might say “art laboratory” – during their annual Welcome to the Neighbourhood event. Founded by Sean Lynch and Michele Horrigan, the ambition is wide, and artists come from all over the world on residencies, that culminate in art everywhere – from the petrol station to the graveyard to the laundrette. Sure, some can be highly conceptual, but many are also great fun. Judge for yourself at this year’s finale as artists including Patrick Hough, Tina O’Connell and Michael Fliri are joined by writers Kevin Barry and Olivia Smith for talks and walks at 3pm.
