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.
