Local historian, Paddy Egan, will be giving a talk at The Dock as part of the National Heritage Week celebrations. Admission to the talk on August 23 at 2pm, is free.

Mr Egan, a local historian and poet from Keenagh in Co. Longford will give an instructive presentation of a selection of objects from his collection of farm and bog implements. Mr Egan is connected to the installation in Gallery 2 of The Dock where his voice is heard in the audio work of Co Longford born artist, Adrian Duncan.

Adrian’s work deals with the overlap between the sciences and art, particularly in the fields of geometry, form and material. His latest exhibition ‘The Difference in How I Believe You’, explores two rural Irish languages; the homogenised architectural language of commercial developments and the spoken language of a rural local historian. On the day Adrian will be collaborating with artist Marta Fernandez Calvo to present an extension of their work from some of the ideas in his exhibition.
