Sunday 2nd June, the War Memorial Gardens at Islandbridge..

On Sunday the 2nd.June, Dublin Sketchers will sketch in the Irish War Memorial Gardens at Islandbridge., from 2pm. and meet for coffee at 4pm. in the Hilton Hotel near Kilmainham.

(Please Note: The venue has been changed from St Annes Park due to the City Marathon and also St. Annes Pk. not now available due to another concert on Sunday. )

The Irish National War Memorial Gardens (IrishGairdíní Náisiúnta Cuimhneacháin Cogaidh na hÉireann) is an Irish war memorial in Islandbridge, Dublin, dedicated "to the memory of the 49,400 Irish soldiers who gave their lives in the Great War, 1914–1918",[1] out of over 300,000 Irishmen who served in all armies.

Designed by the great memorialist Sir Edwin Lutyens who had already landscaped designed several sites in Ireland and around Europe, it is outstanding among the many war memorials he created throughout the world.

If it’s your first time out and you can’t spot anyone, just choose something to sketch and get stuck in. Keep your eyes open for anyone carrying a sketchbook and say hello. It's a friendly crowd who you’ll get to know over a drink from 4pm. Don't worry if you're late, most of us usually are! You need to bring your own paper and pens/pencils etc.

From 4pm we'll gather for a drink in the Hilton Hotel, near Kilmainham, a bunch of sketchers will magically appear.

Hope to see you there!
