    Aosdána

    Aosdána (/iːsˈdɑːnə/; from aos dána "people of the arts") is an Irish association of artists. It was created in 1981 on the initiative of a group of writers and with support from the Arts Council of Ireland. Membership, which is by invitation from current members, is limited to 250 individuals; before 2005 it was limited to 200. Its governing body is called the Toscaireacht. Aosdána was originally set up on the suggestion of writer Anthony Cronin, by Taoiseach Charles Haughey, well known for his support for the Arts, although Fintan O'Toole has argued that this also served to deflect criticism of Haughey's political actions. Some artists feel that the corruption that surrounded Haughey and his Fianna Fáil party compromises the institution. The process of induction relies entirely on members proposing new members. Applications by artist themselves are not allowed. Many artists feel that membership of a state-sponsored organisation might compromise them as artists. In an Irish Times article in 2001, several artists who were not members were asked for comments. Poet Thomas Kinsella said that on looking over the membership he felt his standards were higher. Brendan Kennelly said: "On

    Political discussion society

    The Political Discussion Society was established in 1967 to ensure discussion of issues of national and international importance. The Society is politically oriented without a political agenda and reaches out to all facets of the student body culminating in a cross section of the University. We see it as our role to promote amongst the student populace and the broader centre of population in the West of Ireland, an awareness of the issues affecting contemporary Ireland. The Society meets every Monday evening at 8pm in the O' Flaherty Theatre in the National University of Ireland, Galway. Politics in our Time was the principal campaign of 2004/2005. The aim of the campaign was to reach to out all facets of society and help highlight politics as a vital element in the lives of all. Our aim was to raise awareness of Politics in NUI Galway, and through this campaign we hoped that politics would be perceived as a vibrant and appealing component of University life. Meetings of Politics in Our Time include G.A.A. Commentator Michael O Muireachtaigh, Actor Mick Lally, Minister for Community Rural and Gaeltact Eamon O Cuiv T.D. and Aengus O Snodaigh TD Sinn Féin Whip in Leinster House and

    Commissioners of Irish Lights

    Commissioners of Irish Lights

    The Commissioners of Irish Lights (CIL) (Irish: Coimisinéirí Soilse na hÉireann ) is the body that serves as the General Lighthouse Authority for Ireland plus its adjacent seas and islands. As the Irish Lighthouse Authority it oversees the coastal lights and navigation marks provided by the local lighthouse authorities; the county councils and port authorities. It is funded by ships that use the seas around Ireland pooled with dues raised by the United Kingdom. This recognises that a large volume of shipping, typically transatlantic, relies on the lights provided by the CIL but never puts in to its ports. Signal fires to guide shipping have long existed. Hook Head is the oldest continuous (with some interruptions) light in Ireland, it was originally a signal fire or beacon tended by the monk Dubhán in the fifth century. Monks continued to maintain the light until the Cromwellian conquest of Ireland in 1641. King Charles II reestablished the lighthouse in 1657. He granted a patent for the erection of six lighthouses to Robert Reading, some replacing older lighthouses. at Hook Head, Baily Lighthouse at Howth Head, Howth sand-bar, Old Head of Kinsale, Barry Oge's castle (now

    Iona Institute

    The Iona Institute is a conservative, Catholic think tank based in Ireland. Founded by David Quinn, a journalist and commentator on religious affairs, it was launched publicly in 2007. Psychiatrist Patricia Casey and journalist Breda O'Brien are amongst its patrons. The Institute advocates religion and opposes same-sex marriage and civil partnerships. It posits that rising crime, family breakdown, drug abuse and other social problems are typical of a "weakened society" and that such a society will fail to recognise the importance of marriage and religion unless an evidence-based case was made. Since its foundation, the Institute has released a number of reports to this end. The Iona Institute claims that children fare best only when raised by a mother and father who are married to each other and that, where possible, children have a right to a mother and father. It promotes the place of marriage in society. It is opposed to the surrender of children for adoption by married couples under the proposed children's rights referendum, except where those parents have failed in their duty to their children. The Iona Institute has been accused of homophobia because of their opposition to

    Dublin Samaritans

    Dublin Samaritans refers to the Dublin, Ireland, branch of the Irish and UK registered charity Samaritans. The Dublin branch is based at 112 Marlborough Street where it has occupied the same premises for the past 20+ years. There are 260 active volunteers in Dublin, manning a large city-centre building for 24 hours a day and dealing with 86,000 contacts a year on six emergency telephone lines, in a number of private interview rooms and on computer for emails and text messages. The originator of the Dublin Samaritans was Canon Billy Wynne of the Church of Ireland. He was assisted by Vincent Grogan S.C. and Fr. John F. Brennan S.J. These two Catholics balanced the negative attitude of Archbishop John Charles McQuaid, towards the new organisation. The organisation survived an early crisis, when the executive director was dismissed in 1973. Since then the position has been held by a volunteer member of the organisation. It has had 17 directors to date, each usually serving a three-year term. On 2 March 1970 the first branch of Samaritans in the Republic of Ireland opened in a single room at 39 Kildare Street, Dublin - a building scheduled for demolition. A handful of volunteers staffed

Scouting Ireland SAI began in 1908 as the Dublin City and Dublin County Boy Scouts. Around the same time, a number of Troops in Co. Wicklow formed the Co. Wicklow Scout Association. Also around that time, Sea Scout Troops in the Dublin area formed the Port of Dublin Sea Scout Local Association, and were allocated “Port of Dublin” numbers, a custom that still continues. Over the years, these associations combined to form one association. In 1921, following independence, the name was changed to the Irish Free State Scout Council and it became a national organisation. In 1949, when Ireland became a Republic, the name was changed again to the Boy Scouts of Ireland (BSI), and it also became the first Irish Scout Association to be a part of the World Organization of the Scout Movement (WOSM) in this year. It remained the only WOSM recognised Scout Association in Ireland until 1965 when it, and the Catholic Boy Scouts of Ireland (CBSI), formed the Federation of Irish Scout Associations (FISA) enabling members of both associations to be members of WOSM.

    Irish Recorded Music Association

    Irish Recorded Music Association (IRMA) is the Irish record industry association. IRMA is a non-profit association set up to manage and control the music industry in Ireland. IRMA and Eircom reached an agreement over file sharing which uses a third-party organisation to monitor Eircom users for downloading of pirated music. The agreed system was reported to use a "three-strikes-and-you're-out" system. The agreement was criticised by Digital Rights Ireland and IrelandOffline. The association sent solicitors' letters to several organisations, including hosting service Blacknight Solutions, whose MD, Michele Neylon, made the copy sent to his company publicly available on the company site. Although Blacknight Solutions isn't an ISP they still received the letter, which stated in the event of a positive response to this letter it is proposed to make practical arrangements with Blacknight of a like nature to those made with eircom. Protests against the actions of IRMA are being organised by Digital Rights Ireland, as well as Blackout Ireland. The recording companies and other music-related companies that are on the IRMA board are: In 1997 the IRMA set up a trust with Phonographic

    Royal Hibernian Academy

    The Royal Hibernian Academy (RHA) is an artist-based and artist-oriented institution in Ireland, founded in Dublin in 1823. The RHA was founded as the result of 30 Irish artists petitioning the government for a charter of incorporation. According to the letters patent of 5 August 1823, The Royal Hibernian Academy of Painting, Sculpture, and Architecture was established, which included a National School of Art. The first elected president was the landscape painter, William Ashford. In 1824 architect Francis Johnston was made president. He had provided headquarters for the RHA at Academy House in Lower Abbey Street at his own expense. The first exhibitions took place in May 1825 and were held annually from then on. To encourage interest in the arts works displayed at the RHA were distributed by lot as prizes among subscribers. Works by Frederick William Burton, Daniel Maclise, J. M. W. Turner and David Wilkie, among others, were presented in this way. The exhibitions and school prospered and by the end of the 19th century the RHA was the leading Irish institution involved in promoting visual arts. Academy House was destroyed by fire in 1916 during the Easter Rising. In the middle of

    Dublin Philosophical Society

    The Dublin Philosophical Society was founded in 1683 by William Molyneux. It was intended to be the equivalent of the Royal Society in London, with which it maintained cultural ties. Among its most prominent members were William Petty, Archbishop Narcissus Marsh, Archbishop William King and Bishop George Berkeley. Most of its members were graduates of Trinity College, Dublin, and a number of them were Fellows of the College, but it had closer ties with the Royal College of Physicians. It existed for three periods: 1683-1687, 1692–1698 and 1707-1708. Although it in itself played a small role in intellectual Dublin life, it inspired the foundation of the Dublin Society founded in 1731, which became the Royal Dublin Society in 1820. Molyneux's brother, Thomas Molyneux, was one of the founding members of the Dublin Society.

It was founded in 1922, and its final general secretary was Tony Woodley. In 2007, it merged with Amicus to form Unite. At the time of its creation in 1922, the TGWU was the largest and most ambitious amalgamation brought about within trade unionism. Its structure combined regional organisation, based on Districts and Areas, with committee organisation by occupation, based on six broad Trade Groups. Trade groups were not closely linked to trades, but were elected by activists. Officials of the union were grouped by region, and could be asked to serve each or any trade group. The amalgamating unions were: Docks Group Waterways Group Administrative, Clerical and Supervisory Group There was often ambiguity in the TGWU over the actual name of its white-collar section. From the 1960s it was generally known as ACTS (Administrative, Clerical, Technical and Supervisory) but also

    Royal Dublin Society

    The Royal Dublin Society (RDS) was founded on 25 June 1731 to "to promote and develop agriculture, arts, industry, and science in Ireland". The RDS is synonymous with its main premises in Ballsbridge in Dublin, Ireland. These premises include the "RDS Arena", "RDS Simmonscourt", "RDS main hall" and other venues which are used regularly for exhibitions, concerts and sporting events, including regular use by the Leinster Rugby team. The society was originally founded by members of the Dublin Philosophical Society, chiefly Thomas Prior and Samuel Madden, as the 'Dublin Society for improving Husbandry, Manufactures and other Useful Arts'. On 8 July 1731 - a couple of weeks after initial foundation - the designation 'and Sciences' was added to the end of its name. The stated aim of the "Dublin Society" was therefore to promote the development of arts, agriculture, industry and science in Ireland and in 1792 the Society purchased the Leskean Cabinet to further this ambition. The "Royal" prefix was adopted in 1820 when George IV became Society patron. The society purchased Leinster House, home of the Duke of Leinster, in 1815 and founded a natural history museum there.

    The Amalgamated Society of Carpenters and Joiners (ASCJ) was a New Model Trade Union in the 1860s in the United Kingdom, representing carpenters and joiners. The formation of the Society was spurred by the Stonemason's strike, 1859, which succeeded in winning a nine-hour day. In 1860, a number of small societies formed the Amalgamated. Robert Applegarth was the general secretary from 1862 to 1871. The union also established branches in the United States and in Australia. The United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America took over its U.S. branches in 1913, and the United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners took over its Australian branches in 1917. By 1892, the union had 37,588 members, and by 1900 it had 65,000. In 1911, it merged with the Associated Carpenters and Joiners of Scotland, while in 1918 the Amalgamated Union of Cabinetmakers joined the union, which renamed itself as the Amalgamated Society of Carpenters, Cabinetmakers and Joiners.

    School of Irish Learning

    The School of Irish Learning was a center for Irish studies in Dublin founded in 1903 by Kuno Meyer, who talked of "the necessity of bringing the [Irish revivalist] movement into direct and intimate relations with scholarship, to provide an avenue for every student of Irish to the higher regions of study and research, to crown the whole edifice by a revival of native scholarship, and thus to bring about a second golden age of Irish learning." The School's Honorary Secretary was R. I. Best, and among the first students were Osborn Bergin and T. F. O'Rahilly. The School published books on language and history which remain standard textbooks for undergraduate courses in Irish, and in 1904 it instituted the scholarly journal Ériu, of which Meyer was the editor. The principal object of the School was to provide a thorough professional grounding in linguistics, philology, and textual studies for students who had an advanced competence in Irish and Celtic languages. Instruction was for the most part organized in the form of intensive Summer Schools which were conducted by distinguished scholars invited from overseas, e.g. by Holger Pedersen, Henry Sweet, and Rudolf Thurneysen.
