Halloween scares aplenty around Curraghchase

first_imgNewsLocal NewsHalloween scares aplenty around CurraghchaseBy Alan Jacques – October 14, 2017 2358 “THERE is a mystery about this which stimulates the imagination; where there is no imagination there is no horror,” Arthur Conan Doyle famously penned in the first Sherlock Holmes book ‘A Study in Scarlet’.This theory will be put to the test on Sunday, October 29 when Curraghchase Forest Park comes alive with spooks and spectres as AK UTD and various organisations within the Kilcornan community come together to raise funds.This is not an event for the faint of heart, as the West Limerick tourist hotspot will be taken over by vampires and zombies, werewolves and every other kind of monster imaginable, for a fright-fest that will have the hairs standing up in places you didn’t even know you had them.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The scenic forest walks will be turned into a Halloween terror trail for this nightmarish fundraiser with bumps in the night aplenty.Last year the AK United soccer club and local groups joined forces to plan a Halloween spectacular and within three weeks came up with a fantastic terror trail for pre-teens and adults that many are still recovering from.This year the event has an over 13 age warning on it as the organising committee have promised to make this a much darker experience for everyone involved.And to up the ante on the scare front, local Prince of Darkness, Darren Shan, who has sold more than 25 million copies of his terrifying young adult novels, will even help out with some of the actor’s dialogue.The Limerick writer is world renowned for sending shivers down spines, so all the stops are being pulled out for this year’s event.In 2016, Kilcornan’s community effort saw 80 volunteers acting out the terrifying parts across the forest park with 120 volunteers helping over the course of the weekend.Coilte and Warren Higgins from Curraghchase Caravan and Camping are also on board this year as the trail itself takes place around the campsite.Tickets cost €20 each and are available now at www.kilcornan.com.by Alan [email protected] Limerick Ladies National Football League opener to be streamed live TAGSAK UnitedCurraghchase Forest ParkDarren ShanKilcornanlimerick Limerick Artist ‘Willzee’ releases new Music Video – “A Dream of Peace” Twitter WATCH: “Everyone is fighting so hard to get on” – Pat Ryan on competitive camogie squads WhatsApp Email Predictions on the future of learning discussed at Limerick Lifelong Learning Festival center_img Facebook RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Previous articleMinister kicks around ideas on drug educationNext articleLiam gets European honour for Limerick Greenway pioneers Alan Jacqueshttp://www.limerickpost.ie Linkedin Advertisement Limerick’s National Camogie League double header to be streamed live Billy Lee names strong Limerick side to take on Wicklow in crucial Division 3 clash Printlast_img read more

Discussion analyzes labor

first_imgLast Friday, members of the Labor Café, a biweekly event hosted by the Higgins Labor Studies Program to foster discussion on work, inequality and social justice issues, met at the Snite Museum of Art to discuss Henry Mosler’s “Forging the Cross.” Bridget Hoyt, curator of education at the Snite, led the discussion.“We do these single-work exhibitions once in a while in order to show that the meaning of a work of art is fixed, and in fact, it’s in dialogue by all of us,” Hoyt said.“Forging the Cross,” the focus of the discussion, is a painting of craftsmen laboring over an iron cross with a priest nearby and community members in the background. Much of the discussion was centered on the labor component of the piece.“Although this is work, it is not private work. It is work that has a public dimension … it’s not just that the workers are exerting themselves, but that they’re doing so for these people who are waiting for their product,” Kevin Christiano, professor of sociology, said.Hoyt then focused the discussion onto the possible class divisions portrayed in this painting, especially regarding the role of the priest.“I feel that the priest’s presence shows that they’re making it [the cross] as part of their business; they’re not necessarily thinking about the religious implications … He is sort of the patron paying for this, and they are providing the priest and upper class this service,” freshman Julie Mardini said.Daniel Graff, director of the Higgins Labor Program, offered a different interpretation of the significance of the various roles in the painting.“You can read this completely positively, that forging a cross, forging a church or forging a religious community, [this painting] shows the work involved in that. Even though it’s showing men at work and women watching, they’re still in the frame,” Graff said.Hoyt and Cheryl Snay, curator of European Art, furthered the discussion by speaking on the time period and context of the piece and the artist Henry Mosler.“Mosler, as an artist, has a career that’s really emblematic of American artists of the later nineteenth century,” Hoyt said.Hoyt explained that Henry Mosler immigrated to the United States after spending much time in Europe, and he painted “Forging the Cross” in 1904 in New York City.“By the time this painting was painted, he had moved back to the United States, set up his studio in New York and had embarked on a series of historical paintings,” Snay said.Snay explained that Mosler described the community members in the painting as being dressed in Puritan clothing when he applied to copyright his work, but the priest in the painting is not illustrative of a Puritan minister. This has led to ambiguity surrounding the priest and the meaning of the work.Graff also commented on the historical context of the piece.“He’s painting this in 1904 … this in the midst of class conflict of urban America. … [Mosler] may be somehow commenting on something to do with religion and the workplace and community,” Graff said.Similarly, the discussion then concluded on the meaning of the work and the significance of this painting in relation to present day America.“I’m wondering what the effect of this painting is today, … and I don’t really know what it is besides thinking about … [how] everyone in their lifetime will experience some type of work, whether they’re viewing it … [or] doing it,” senior Hannah Petersen said.“Forging the Cross” will remain in exhibition at the Snite Museum of Art until March 13, and the next Labor Café will be hosted by the Higgins Labor Studies Program on April 1 in the Geddes Coffeehouse.Tags: Forging the Cross, Labor Cafelast_img read more

Clippers’ Austin Rivers hopes to be back in time for playoff opener

first_imgNow, it’s Austin Rivers.While Jamal Crawford is rightly credited as the team’s top reserve, Rivers has been just as valuable, averaging 12 points and shooting 44.2 percent from the field.“As much as he’s been important to us offensively,” Doc Rivers said, “we’re going to miss his defense especially, putting him on literally anybody one-to-three. We don’t have that anymore, so hopefully we get it back, shoot, by playoffs.”The most pressing question is what Austin Rivers’ injury means for the Clippers’ hopes of not losing their grasp of the fifth seed. He said as long as he is healthy by Game 1 – regardless of opponent – he’ll be content.“We’re going to win our games,” he said. “We’ll get seeded wherever we get seeded. I just want to be right for Game 1 and I believe I will be. So with that note, obviously, it is frustrating because you don’t want to have anything nagging but at least we have time to get it right.”March madness****Doc Rivers called the March schedule “one of the hardest months I’ve ever seen,” with 18 games, five sets of back-to-backs and four one-game trips.For better or worse, the Clippers survived it.Now, they get to play their final five games over 13 days, giving them ample time for rest and practice.“That’s going to be helpful for us just to practice,” the Clippers coach said. “Even though we won’t go long, we went a whole month without a practice (before Tuesday), so it will be nice to be able to get back on the floor and just work, and try to get our continuity.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Rivers said he “just felt something jerk, pull a little bit,” in his left leg after his first shot against the Wizards and after a couple more minutes asked out of the game. He is targeting a return in time for Game 1 of a best-of-7 first-round series, which is at least two weeks away.“It’s just another guy out,” Coach Doc Rivers said. “It’s been that way all year, so guys are pretty used to it.”The Clippers have been undone by injuries in the last 15 months, and this season Blake Griffin and Chris Paul have both missed 21 games with injuries that overlapped and left the Clippers without at least one of their stars for a span of two months.Austin Rivers said “people haven’t given (the Clippers) enough credit” for the way the Clippers have overcome injuries this year.“People are always looking for something wrong with our team instead of looking for what’s right,” he said. “Why don’t you look at how many injuries we’ve had and still been able to hold down the ship in the West, and still be a top-five seed in the West without Blake and Chris for a big chunk of games?”center_img PHOENIX>> Austin Rivers shuffled slowly through a corridor of Talking Stick Resort Arena. The reserve will be critical to the Clippers in the playoffs, but it doesn’t look like he’ll be able to help them before then.Rivers will likely be sidelined for the remaining five games of the regular season after suffering a strained left hamstring in Wednesday’s win over Washington.“It’s definitely a little frustrating,” Rivers said, as he watched his teammates warm up prior to tip-off against the Suns. “This is the time of year, if anytime, I want to be healthy. … At least it’s not during the playoffs.”last_img read more
