Fête de la Musique open air
Delorentos - The Gloaming
Fête de la Musique at the Centre Culturel Irlandais is now synonymous with excellent music and an incomparable ambience created by the thousands of people who join us to listen, sing and dance.
Zipping from understated ballads to chiming, climactic indie and sunny-side-up melodic pop, Irish 4-piece Delorentos won the prestigious Meteor Choice Music Prize “Irish Album of the Year” at the beginning of this year for their third album Little Sparks. “The sound of a band who have found their musical and lyrical groove.” (Irish Times). This, their first concert in France, is one not miss! www.delorentos.net
One of the most acclaimed groups to emerge in recent years, The Gloaming will play this closing concert of Ireland’s Presidency of the EU, just as they marked its opening. Five musicians with impressive solo careers transcend together the barriers between traditional and contemporary music: Thomas Bartlett (piano), Dennis Cahill (guitar), Martin Hayes (fiddle), Iarla O Lionaird (voice) and Caoimhín O Raghallaigh (fiddle, viola, hardanger fiddle). thegloamingmusic.tumblr.com

Marché de la Poésie : Soirée de clôture
de la Périphérie - Open air event
The final magical evening of the Festival de la Périphérie in which Ireland was particularly honoured during the Marché de la Poésie will take place at the CCI. Poetry by Harry Clifton, Vona Groarke and Derek Mahon and sweet music will be followed by a buffet under the stars, sheltered by the enfolding wings of the historic old Irish College.
Further details will be available soon on this page.
STRONG HEALTH, NO LUCK FOR THE IRISH
During the European Heamochromatosis Health week, it will again be demonstrated that the diagnosis of this illness is particularly found in Irish people.
The statistics show the impact on the Irish population is about 20 times higher than in the rest of Europe.
The consequences of late diagnosis can be very serious, a general doctor can easily establish the symptoms:
abnormal or chronic tiredness, sore articulation, heart rhythm problems, diabetics, sexual problems and grey pigmentation of the skin can be the signs of the sickness. A simple blood sample is enough to measure the iron level and the state of transferrin saturation (iron transport protein).
Without having a general diagnosis, why not think of talking to your doctor about the 'Irish' Heamochromatosis risk during your next visit ?

A WALK ON THE WIDE SIDE
by Ann Cremin
One of the advantages of living in Lyon is that you are basically at the very heart of Europe – whichever direction one chooses, one comes across fragments of French history.
LIVE FROM DUBLIN : ESSENTIAL IRELAND
To mark ‘The Gathering Ireland 2013’, the National Gallery of Ireland has put together a special exhibition, ‘Essential Ireland: a mini tour’, featuring picturesque images of popular destinations around the country.
Many of Ireland’s major cities and beauty spots appear in works in the Gallery’s historic collection, including paintings, maps and guidebooks dating from the 1800s.

This exhibition presents the work of one of the great engineers of the 20th century whose name is largely unknown to the general public. A specialist in steel structures, Dundalk-born Peter Rice (1935-1992) was a driving force within the design teams for landmark architectural projects including the Sydney Opera House, Centre Pompidou, the ‘Nuage’ of La Défense and the Pyramide inversée of the Louvre museum.
Architectural models, drawings, large-scale images and personal notebooks are brought together here for the first time; combined with archival films on the construction of key buildings and on Peter Rice himself, they will bring the past to life. New work by artist Vivienne Roche, commissioned for the exhibition, reveals the qualities that characterised Rice – lightness, an innovative sense of scale and detail, a love of tactility and surprise, and a distinctive awareness of construction as a profoundly human activity.
Organised in collaboration with Arup Phase 2, London, the Office of Public Works at Farmleigh, Dublin, and with the support of RFR, Paris, this exhibition will be opened by the well-known Italian architect Renzo Piano.
