ONE OF the surefire musical highlights of GIAF 2018 is The Flaming Lips’ gig in the Heineken Big Top on Thursday July 26. Freewheeling, prolific, and endlessly inventive, the band remain as full of zip and ideas today as when they started out more than 30 years ago.

The Garda Barracks, Salthill

image preview

The building which houses the Garda station in Salthill was originally called Forster Park and was constructed as a summer house by the Blake Forster family at the end of the 18th century. In 1850, it was bought by the Palmer family who were well known whiskey distillers, flour millers, and makers of porter. Most of their business was based in Nuns’ Island. Their coat of arms can still be seen on the facade of this building. We can presume that Palmer’s Rock (sometimes known as Saunder’s Rock), on the shore in front of this house, was named after a member of the family.

The archive throws new light on two pivotal but under-researched figures of 20th and 21st century Irish and British theatre and also features strongly the activism of both Arden and D’Arcy.

Album review: Lankum

image preview

I RARELY get excited about Irish folk/trad albums, given most are either of the sickly slick super produced variety or else have that purist reductionism which renders trad as a kind of 'living dead' form where jibes that 'it all sounds the same' are not without foundation.
