Arts Festival Preview: Is there Arts in Dundalk?

Dundalk has always struggled with the arts.

WHEN IS IT NOW: MONDAY
WHERE’D THAT BE: BARLOW HOUSE
IT’S NOT ON TOO LATE IS IT: 10 AM
ARE THE TICKETS DEAR: THEY PAY YOU TO GO

More a discussion that an arts event. Broadcaster Pat Kenny chairs a diverse group of stakeholders over the age old question – Is there any arts in Dundalk?

Guest lecturers include Emeritus Professor of Craptown Studies Alf Lynch, Jim Corr (not him), lecturer in Urban & Cultural Decay at Birkbeck College and dormant members of the RA concerned with the Republican arts of bombing, diesel smuggling and mural painting.

It promises to be a lively discussion even though everybody knows the answer is no.
