Sweny's Chemist 2pm Sunday 4th March

Hi all, we are invited to draw in Sweny's Chemist this Sunday at the usual time of 2pm. Sweny's is over 150 years old - and is mentioned in James Joyce's Ulysses.

It's full of nooks and crannies and if you haven't been before it's a lovely experience. Inside space is limited - if you want to sit, bring a fold up stool if you have one, tehre aren't may in it. If the weather is good and you dress warmly perhaps you'll be able to brave it outside , the exterior is rather interesting too. Sweny's is a Dublin treasure and it's run by volunteers who depend on donations to keep it running, so if you could drop a euro or two into their donation box it would be a big help. They will offer us tea and Jessica will provide some biscuits. You can also buy some lemon soap if you want.

We'll meet outside Sweny's at four as usual and decide where to go for coffee after that. We will also be discussing the Dublin Sketchers annual exhibition for June 22, 23 , 24 in DunLaoghaire and we'd like to hear your thoughts on what's been discussed so far.

It's just off Merrion Square, in between Merrion Sq West (National Gallery and the Mont Clare Hotel on Fenian St) Wesland Row (Pierce St.Dart Station) and Leinster Road(Trinity College Douglas hyde side) Sweny's chemist's shop in Lincoln Place, Dublin 2
