Myers

The Little Museum of Dublin, on St. Stephen’s Green, Dublin, are having journalist and author Padraig Yeates and former Irish Independent, now Sunday Times columnist Kevin Myers (above) over to talk about the 1913 Lockout.

The museum people say:

“Kevin Myers will open with a controversial reappraisal of Strumpet City, this year’s One City One Book, long the definitive narrative of the events of 1913. Myers will argue that the book is ”the moral inspiration for the disaster that was the Croke Park deal,” in a blistering critique of the second most celebrated Dublin novel.

“Lockout: 1913 author, Yeates, will then revisit the industrial dispute that made William Martin Murphy and Big Jim Larkin household names, and changed Dublin irrevocably.”

Mr Myers will speak at 5.30pm and Mr Yeates will speak at 7pm.

From an exhibition opening tonight (until January 30) in the Little Museum of Dublin, St Stephen’s Green of photographs taken by Brendan Walsh.

Brendan, whose Dublin collection spans 1972-1982, did his “apprenticeship” in Northern Ireland with Magnum photographer Evelyn Hofer.

Simon O’Connor at the Museum writes:

The photos are amazing – harrowing but really beautiful and very dignified. Brendan was also present taking shots at the famous Gregory Deal of 1982, some of those are in the exhibition too. Its unsurprising how relevant these photographs still are -  a people’s resilience in the face of a state’s failure to nurture them, a continuing hallmark of the city.
