What we're getting up to this weekend

Week on week we pick the best things happening in our city - from art to music, exhibitions to cinema we've got you covered. This week is no exception lots going on, so if you're not going to Electric Picnic don't despair Dublin ain't so bad. Exhibition: High Treason: Roger Casement Exhibition This exhibition runs for the next month at Hug Lane Gallery - Sir John Lavery’s monumental painting, High Treason: The Appeal of Roger Casement, The Court of Criminal Appeal, 17 and 18 July 1916 moves from its home at Kings Inns to Hugh Lane where it will be the main focus of the historic exhibition. Cinema: A Date For Mad Mary We're big fans of cinema at Hunter HQ, in particular Irish cinema, so when we saw this trailer we immediately booked tickets for the weekend. It opens September 2 and we'll be front row and centre. The movie premise - 'Mad’ Mary McArdle returns to Drogheda after a short spell in prison - for something she’d rather forget. Back home, everything and everyone has changed. Her best friend, Charlene, is about to get married and Mary is maid of honour. When Charlene refuses Mary a ‘plus one’ on the grounds that she probably couldn't find a date, Mary becomes determined to prove her wrong. But her attempts at dating are a disaster and she winds up feeling more alone… until she meets Jess and everything changes.
