So I have received word of another event taking place in Cork for Europe Day. Its taking place in the Glucksman Gallery of University College Cork. Here is the email I got.


An Exhibition by Irish Times Cartoonist Martyn Turner

Hosted by the Department of Government

2pm Friday 7 May 2010

(running until Sunday 9 May)

Glucksman Gallery, UCC


It often takes an outside perspective to point out society’s idiosyncracies. Martyn Turner, cartoonist with the Irish Times, does this par excellence. His brand of humour is invariably insightful, but never vitriolic. Through his art-form, he has captured the absurdities and peculiarities which sporadically infect Irish political life. Indeed, his cartoons are the reason many open the morning paper.

To mark Europe Day 2010, and with the generous support of the Glucksman Gallery and the European Commission Representation in Ireland, the Department of Government is delighted to provide an opportunity for people to view the work of Martyn Turner. The Eurotoons exhibition focuses on Ireland’s ‘European’ experience over the last 50 years or so. It will be launched in the Glucksman Gallery at 2pm on Friday 7 May by Vice-President for Teaching and Learning, Professor Grace Neville.

All are welcome to attend the launch and exhibition.

Should be interesting. I will definitely be paying a visit!
