Three This Thursday – Summer Festival, Football & a Guide to Irish Accents

This week\’s Three This Thursday takes you on a celebration of the sun, a trip to Irish football heaven and a journey through the accents of Ireland.

INVISIBLE LATE: A Midsummer Night In – Science Gallery – Sunday, June 21st – 6pm

Is the Science Gallery the greatest place in Dublin? Possibly. We certainly love these guys and they are always up to something special. Normally at this time of year they\’d get a few bands in and have a bit of a party. But with doors (temporarily) closed right now, they\’ve decided to move the party online. On Sunday they\’ll be celebrating the longest day of the year with history, light play, audiovisual escapes and a behind-the-scenes look at the art and processes of INVISIBLE, our current exhibition.

Kicking off at 18.00 on 21 June, MIDSUMMER will be a virtual celebration of the year’s grandest stretch. Take a trip to view the setting summer solstice sun from a Neolithic cairn in Carrowkeel, find out hoe to build your own light box and get down and moody with an immersive audiovisual experience from No Place Like Drone.  As if that weren\’t enough there\’s an after-hours party .

TWo years later we got the last eight of the World Cup.

It\’s quick and it\’s pretty much on the money. It\’s also a little controversial in places but it might help to figure out why you find some us easier to understand than others. Enjoy.
