COMEDY: Enya Martin – Would Ya Be Able?
Enya Martin, of Facebook and Instagram comedy video page Giz A Laugh, is making her comedy debut in Kilkenny at Watergate Theatre. Pure fun, this is the sort of entertainment we all need right now. There are a few tickets left for the 3pm show. However, we suggest you book quickly. Enya has nearly 300,000 followers on Facebook, so she’s a very popular performer!
PHOTOGRAPHY: Ireland in Focus: Photographing the 1950s
The National Museum of Ireland – Decorative Arts & History in Collins Barracks have a superb exhibition of photography running until November. The exhibition highlights the way in which three photographers, from France and North America, saw and portrayed Ireland of the 1950s, through the places they visited and the people they photographed. There are lots of other great exhibitions running currently, making a trip to the museum the perfect way to while away a day in Dublin. As always, the museum is free to visit.
YOGA: Seated Yoga Online
The Chester Beatty Library may be back open to visitors, but they haven’t forgotten those who wish to experience their events online. Mary Dowling, arts historian and trained yoga instructor, will share breathing and stretching exercises of seated yoga on Saturday at 1pm. You can join in from the comfort oh your own home. Ohmmmmm……
