|Work done by James Moore - June 2011|
This Sunday we are heading for the Pearse Museum, to support our fellow sketcher James Moore in his recent Brazilian Irish endeavours. For information on James' exhibition and work, see his website here.
We will meet at 2pm at the entrance to the Museum to spend time sketching, then meet again at 4pm in the courtyard cafe for a chat over coffee.
The Pearse Museum is the former school run by Patrick Pearse, now a museum in beautiful grounds. It's set in St. Enda's Park - one of Dublin city's most charming and atmospheric parks, with its riverside walks, waterfall and walled garden. There's more information at http://www.heritageireland.ie/en/Dublin/PearseMuseum-StEndasPark/
Location: 8km approximately from Dublin City Centre. You can park either in the car park that you can access from Taylors Lane or there's a bigger one on Sarah Curran Avenue.
Bus Route: No. 16 from City Centre. The bus stop you need to ask for is "Grange Road (Sarah Cullen Avenue)" and then you'll see a sign for St Enda's Park / Pearse Museum - look out for the car park. Here's the timetable for the bus http://www.dublinbus.ie/en/Your-Journey1/Timetables/All-Timetables/16/ You can pick up the number 16 bus on O'Connell street near the Gresham Hotel. From the timetable it looks like there's a number 16 bus that leaves O'Connell Street around 1pm.
