A one-of-a-kind cycle adventure hosted by the Grass Routes CC, in association with The Bike Place. This self guided Grass Routes Gran Fondo takes participants on a criss-cross 140km stage where they weave a path from rural boreen to boreen, taking in several mixed surface sectors on route to the finish. Influenced by the American DIY gravel events, but more in common with the European “classics”, the crew at Grass Routes CC have taken the no marshal self-guided approach and brought it to the road community; ever wonder where that small road goes? Well now you know! Type of bike required? This questions come up quite a bit and we try answer it as best we can but ultimately it comes down to riders choice. This is designed as a “classics” style road bike event, so some mixed surfaces are to be expected but all just about passable for a roadie (think Roubaix). The vast majority is paved rural roads and boreen (grass routes) which have pretty good surfaces, the boreens can be in mixed repair. The Bike Place will be riding road bikes with 25c standard tyres, some people will prefer to use a CX/Gravel bike with 28c+ road […]

Assemblages and drawings Research, drawings and prints at the Source Gallery, Thurles Drawing on over a decade of image-making and research on themes of protest and urban space, Irish artist Joy Gerrard archives and painstakingly remakes media-borne crowd images. Her subjects include climate change, Brexit, BLM protests and women’s equalities. These crowds are re-imaged in large monochrome paintings and small complex drawings made with Japanese ink. The elemental simplicity of Gerrard’s ink drawings and paintings contradicts the material complexity of making. The viewer considers the precarious freedom of protest and the relation between populism and representative democracy. In her work, the figure of the crowd represents an expression of collective agency. Gerrard’s crowds are often viewed from above in urban environments, indicating media surveillance. For the Source Gallery in Thurles, Gerrard is developing an exhibition which will make visible her working process. She will exhibit working drawings, collages and print assemblages which show how large scale works are developed from small drawings and plans. Joy Gerrard lives and works in Belfast. She graduated with a BA from NCAD, Dublin and an MA and MPhil from the Royal College of Art, London. Gerrard is known for work that investigates different systems […]
