Every year Whistleberry Forest, the creatures of the forest look forward to the end of the frosty Winter and to the beginning of Spring. This year was a little different however, as Springtime had arrived earlier than usual. All the hibernating animals were still curled up fast asleep, except for one. Huggy the hedgehog! Join Huggy on his joyful adventure to find evidence of Spring. 

Musician Thomas Johnston and puppeteer Niamh Lawlor lead this interactive traditional music, puppetry, and storytelling performance. Set design by Eve Fisher.

dlr Red Jetty is Architectural Programme for Creative Ireland 2017 by dlr Architects’ Department in collaboration with A2 Architects and Alan Meredith Studio and supported by dlr Parks Department. dlr RED JETTY - a temporary seat that will offer a place for all ages to meet as well as rest, to be located in a number of parks and public spaces in the county of Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown over the summer months.

With echoes of Dun Laoghaire Pier, the geometry of the bench starts as a line and then spirals in on itself to make a forum at its centre.  It will be painted in a signal red and will rest on cylindrical concrete supports so that it can be easily disassembled and allow for various other geometric configurations to suit its setting each time it is relocated. The first location for the Jetty will be the LexIcon Garden, Moran Park   mid- July, moving around the County in August to Marlay Park, Cabinteely Park and other public spaces.
