Sunday 04 October - Glasnevin Cemetary

This Sunday 04 October, Dublin Sketchers are meeting at Glasnevin Cemetery, Finglas Road, Dublin 11.  

Glasnevin is Ireland’s most historic graveyard and is the resting place of over one million Dubliners.

Everyday at 2.30pm there is a re-enactment of Padraig Pearse’s fiery oration from 1915 (“The fools, the fools, the fools … “ and all that) which is well worth catching. Recently, they have opened the gate which allows you wander into the Botanic Gardens if you prefer to draw plants than headstones.

We will meet at 2pm at the front entranceDon’t worry if you’re late - just get stuck in and draw whatever takes your fancy.

We’ll meet again at 4pm and adjourn to Kavanagh’s Pub (aka the Gravediggers) for refreshments and a chat.   

If you haven't been before, keep your eyes open for anyone carrying a sketch book and come and say hello.  Dublin Sketcher’s is FREE – just bring your own drawing materials.

Hope to see you there
