In early October each year an unusual event takes place in and around the island of Ireland. Over a period of just a few days both public buildings and private dwellings of some architectural significance, which are not normally open to the public are made available for public inspection.

These ranged from Aras an Uachtar√°in – the residence of the president of Ireland, to the Google Docks building, to an obscure Dublin artisans’ dwelling, built originally in c1909, but re-imagined for modern living. The range covers residential, cultural, educational, community, public and commercial buildings. Continue Reading…

DEBRA Ireland, is a charitable organisation established in 1988 to help children born with EB, or epidermolysis bullosa. It raises funds to research the causes of EB, and ultimately to find a cure for the disease. EB is a very painful genetic skin condition whereby both internal and external skin becomes “as delicate and fragile as the wings of a butterfly, and just as easily damaged” (DEBRA flyer 18-8-2013). Hence, DEBRA’s butterfly logo.

On 18th August 2013, DEBRA hosted a fund raising event in Templeogue College, Dublin. [mO] went along to see the facinating range of classic cars, and to talk to some of their owners.
