NAILED-ON ART First – Paul Mosse Hills­boro Fine Art, 49 Par­nell Square West, Dublin 1 Un­til Septem­ber 30th, hills­bo­rofin­

With a ma­jor ex­hi­bi­tion, What’s With the Apoca­lypse? open­ing at Car­low’s Vis­ual on Septem­ber 16th, Hills­boro has a taster of this ac­claimed artist’s work. Mosse, known for his three-di­men­sional works – lay­er­ing, tear­ing and oc­ca­sion­ally even shoot­ing at his ma­te­ri­als – makes pieces that come right out to meet you. Or­ganic-look­ing sculp­tures in in­dus­trial ma­te­ri­als con­fuse the eye, so you might even find your­self want­ing to stroke a cud­dly crea­ture on a plinth. Warn­ing – it turns out to be made from noth­ing but nails. GT

FAM­ILY ACT The Mulc­ahy Fam­ily Ionad Cultúrtha, Bal­lyvour­ney, Co Cork Satur­day Septem­ber 9th 8.30pm ¤15 ion­ad­cul­

Fa­ther/daugh­ter trio Mick, Louise and Michelle Mulc­ahy bring the pure drop across the county bounds to Cork where their daz­zling ar­ray of in­stru­ments (ac­cor­dion, con­certina and pipes for starters) and fine, un­fil­tered play­ing style will in­evitably breathe fresh life into fa­mil­iar tunes, as well as many less-fa­mil­iar ones too. Their 2016 award-win­ning al­bum, The Reel Note, was a timely snap­shot of a trio whose ge­netic in­her­i­tance is writ large across their seam­less play­ing. SL
