Past Events

GlasDrum Macalla

Macalla: Exhibition & Show

MACALLA was a captivating exhibition in April 2016 by glass sculptor Róisín de Buitléar, a pioneer in the field of contemporary glass in Ireland. Set in the serene surrounds of the new Cregan Library in St. Patrick’s College Drumcondra, the glass-cantilevered building provided a perfect backdrop for her visually and sonically fascinating glass objects.

The exhibition was accompanied by a performance of music and glass sounds by one of Ireland’s best known musicians and songwriters, Liam Ó Maonlaí, with fellow Hothouse Flower Peter O’Toole, the result of an ongoing collaboration with Róisín de Buitléar. Liam and Peter were joined by guest musicians from Glasnevin/Drumcondra and beyond in what was a magical musical event in the auditorium of DCU St Patrick’s Campus, Drumcondra.
