Sunday 2 September Dublin Sketchers in Stoneybatter

Stoneybatter, historically known as Bohernaglogh, is a neighbourhood of Dublin, Ireland, on the Northside of the city between the River Liffey, the North Circular Road, Smithfield Market, and Grangegorman. It is in the Dublin 7 postal district.

We'll go and sketch in Stoneybatter on Sunday 2nd September from 2pm and meet from 4pm in Kavanaghs Pub at 1 Aughrim Street.

If you've not been before - come along with your sketch book  / pens / pencils / whatever tools take your fancy. Don't worry if you're late, it's Sunday so we all are. Look out for other sketchers, say hi and just get sketching. You'll meet everyone in the pub from 4pm.

Sam (who managed to avoid the rain by going into Blackrock Market!)






On Sunday 26th August Dublin Sketchers will be out and about in Blackrock from 2pm converging at The Three tun Tarvern from 4pm to check out each other's work.

 Blackrock Village has a lot of different style buildings
including a Carnegie Library which has been recently restored and
on a Saturday and Sunday they have a colourfully market 

 Blackrock park is a very beautiful park with a small pond in the middle.
There is a very handy lane if you turn to your right
as you come out of the dart station that brings you right into the park
You will have a good view of the park from the Dart if you are coming from Dublin

 Blackrock Dart station besides the Dart
you can also get to Blackrock by numbers 7, 7a and 17 

We'll gather for Refreshments in The Three Tun Tavern
which is located on Temple Road in the village 
from 4pm to check out each other's work.

I am aware of the Pope might muck up the traffic on Sunday
but hopefully all those who want to come can make it

On Sunday 12 August, Dublin Sketchers will be out and about in Herbert Park from 2pm and converging at Lolly and Cooks from 4pm to check out each other's work.

The land used for the park was given to the city by the 14th Earl of Pembroke whose family name was Herbert. In 1907, the World Fair known as the Irish International Exhibition was held in Ballsbridge. When the structures had been dismantled, the site was developed as the current public park
The park is thirty-two acres in size and is in two halves, divided by a road, also called Herbert Park. A full circuit of the park's perimeter is almost exactly one mile, a fact used by runners and walkers to measure their progress. The larger half, on the south side of the road, is bounded by the River Dodder, houses, and includes a number of soccer pitches, formal gardens, and a large duck pond and an older public children's playground. A gazebo is also present in the North-Eastern corner of the park at the entrance to the Herbert Park Hotel. 
There are buses that will leave you either in Ballsbridge outside the American Embassy it is just a short walk across the road to Herbert park or you can get a bus to Donnybrook and get off at the top of Herbert Park and walk down to the Park from there. The road cuts right through the park and Lolly and Cooks is on the opposite side to the pond 
We'll gather for a coffee or Tea at  Lolly and Cooks from 4pm to check out each other's work.
