Trek 'Camino de Santiago' with MS Ireland.

This is one of our most popular treks, offering a wonderful opportunity to explore some of the lesser known and unspoilt parts of Northern Spain. Our walk starts in the magnificent Pyrenees mountains and we then follow the ‘yellow arrows’ taking us through tiny sun swept villages, past majestic cathedrals, through red poppy fields and the lanes of enchantment of Galicia, all leading to the mystical city of Santiago de Compostela.

Those Surprising Silents

Renowned silent film historian, Kevin Brownlow for Limerick on 18th February
2012 at 2pm. Speaking at the Strand Hotel Limerick

With the film world buzzing at the remarkable success at the recent Golden
globe awards of the modern silent film, ‘The Artist’, the Friends of the Hunt Museum are delighted with the happy coincidence that their next event, to be held in the Strand Hotel, Limerick on t...he afternoon of February 18th is also highlighting the world of silent movies , when their guest speaker will be Bafta and Oscar award winner, Kevin Brownlow, whose lifetime’s passion for restoring and presenting silent movies earned him the acclaim of Hollywood.

For his visit to Limerick, the theme of his talk will be ‘Those Surprising Silents’, when he will demonstrate his contention that silent film was an art form in its own right, rather than a primitive step on the way to the maturity of the talkies, and that the people who made them had extraordinary stories to tell. The talk will be illustrated by film extracts of the silent era, ranging from films lasting a minute made in 1900, through action melodramas and slapstick comedies, to the spectacular epics of the late twenties.

This remarkable Englishman of Irish descent is the author of several books on
the history of Film and has directed many acclaimed documentaries on the same subject. His film restorations include more than 25 silent films, including
classics such as The Thief of Bagdad starring Douglas Fairbanks, Ben-Hur,
Buster Keaton’s The General and Our Hospitality. In the course of his research he has met and enjoyed the friendship of the royalty of old Hollywood, including Buster Keaton, Lillian Gish, Mary Pickford, Louise Brooks, Gloria Swanson, Harold Lloyd and many others. No less a person than Martin Scorsese has said “You might say that Mr Brownlow is film history.”

This not to be missed event will take place at 2pm on the 18th February in the Strand Hotel, Limerick. Tickets at €20 are available from the Hunt Museum Giftshop (061-312833) or the Friends of the Hunt Museum (061-312960).
Early booking would be appreciated. There is a student concession available.
