1. Dark Land
Join the Night Time Tours by the National Leprechaun Museum as you explore the dark twisted side of Irish story-telling. Let our Storytellers tickle the dark underbelly of your mind.
There are hundreds of stories that were only spoken about at night. These tales dealt with the darker subjects found in Irish folklore. They are tales that are so dark and twisted that there is no way we could ever talk about them during regular daytime tours. Dark Land is a chance to hear these stories for yourself and will stay with you for a lifetime. No refunds for scaredy cats!

When: Thursday nights, 7:30 pm and 8:30 pm
Friday and Saturday nights, 7:00 pm, 7:30 pm and 8:30 pm
Price: €16. Adults only.

2. The Executioner. Film screening
El verdugo / The executioner (1964) is the next film in the Spanish Film series “The Spanish Essentials”, organized by Instituto Cervantes (Dublin).
Perhaps Berlanga’s most elegant film, El Verdugo tells the story of a funeral-home employee who marries a government executioner’s daughter. In order to get an apartment, he agrees to take over his father-in-law’s job with the hope of never actually having to perform it. Through a savagely black humorous tone, The Executioner is a vehement censure of the death penalty, which caused the Spanish government to try (unsuccessfully) to stop it being screened at the Venice Festival and later to order numerous cuts.
It will be screened in Spanish with English subtitles.
Where: Pearse Street Library, 138-144 Pearse Street, 2 Dublín Dublin
Price: Free admission
