Shackleton: A Century Apart

As the exhibition Endurance: Shackleton's Antarctic Adventure! starts to wind-down at Liverpool's Merseyside Maritime Museum (for details click here) another event celebrating the intrepid Irish-born polar explorer is to be held on the opposite side of the Irish Sea, writes Jehan Ashmore.
In 1911, Ernest Shackleton presented a lecture on his South Pole expedition in Dublin. The lecture will be commemorated exactly a century later with next Monday's multi-media event titled 'Nearest the Pole'. The event will be held in the original venue of the lecture in the Rotunda Pillar Room in the grounds of the Rotunda Hospital, in Parnell Square.

Writers, musicians and actors will be joined by relatives of Shackleton for an evening of theatre, illustrated talks, newspaper readings, poetry and song in the splendid interior surroundings of the city-centre venue (click here).

Tickets for the evening event on Monday 21 February, starting at 6.30pm, cost €10 at the door or can be purchased in advance by contacting (01) 872 2377. The event will be repeated in the Droichead Arts Centre, Drogheda on Monday 28 February, at 8pm. For further details Tel: (041) 983 3946
