Have you heard about GDPR? (sick of hearing about it by now, probably) but it applies to you if you’re one of the lucky people (!) who receives an email from Scéalta Ealaíne each week to notify you about my latest blog post. (Don’t worry – there’s more interesting stuff down below – but first…)

GDPR is the new General Data Protection Regulation which comes into effect tomorrow morning. To help comply with this GDPR consent requirements, I would like to remind you that you can unsubscribe at any time from these emails. You can simply click on the ‘Unsubscribe’ button at the bottom of the email.

Now, I don’t want you to go, of course, but I wouldn’t like anybody to feel tied down or taken for granted. More importantly, I want to reiterate that I don’t do anything with your email address – and I absolutely don’t share your information with anyone!

So no – I don’t want to know what you had for breakfast! But I like having you here with me in Bloggyland. It’s nice to know that people read my musings and it’s lovely to get your comments from time to time.

But speaking of Breakfast, the watercolour above will be in a group exhibition entitled: ‘Drawing on Joyce’ which takes place at the Olivier Cornet Gallery during the Bloomsday Festival in June. I was doing some research and I came across some old photographs of the tenements in Dublin during James Joyce’s time. (The original Bloomsday was on the 16th of June, 1904). You may remember in Joyce’s novel Ulysses, Leopold Bloom made breakfast for Molly before going out to purchase some mutton kidneys. Well, I’d imagine his fireplace and kettle looked something like this…

The official opening is on Sunday, 10th of June, 2018 at 3 pm and the guest speaker will be the poet Theo Dorgan. If you’re in Dublin, do drop in.
