A world first for UL

first_imgNewsA world first for ULBy John Keogh – May 1, 2013 876 No vaccines in Limerick yet Twitter Celebrating a ground breaking year in music from Limerick Emma Langford shortlisted for RTE Folk Award and playing a LIVE SHOW!!! this Saturday Walk in Covid testing available in Limerick from Saturday 10th April WhatsApp Linkedin Email Advertisementcenter_img #SaucySoul: Room 58 – ‘Hate To See You Leave’ TAGSfeaturedfull-imageMasters in Festive ArtsMinister Jimy DeenihanMusic LimerickUniversity of Limerick Print THE world’s first Masters in Festive Arts was launched at the University of Limerick’s Irish World Academy of Music by Arts Minister Jimmy Deenihan on Monday last.The one year, full-time programme includes practical, scholarly and performance-based aspects of festival studies.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Students can apprentice with a festival to gain festival coordination and design skills, as well as being introduced to the study of festival, a survey of global festivity, and festival management and curatorship.Describing the programme as a “global first” Professor Mícheál Ó Súilleabháin said it was the university’s gift to the city of Limerick as it prepared for its City of Culture status.“It will intersect with the City of Culture initiative, and will serve as one of the important legacy projects of the City of Culture 2014 year. Graduates will work on a practical level with festivals – and perhaps specifically with a new international arts festival proposed by the Irish World Academy as a further legacy project for the City of Culture year 2014.”A feasibility study for a major international festival was commissioned by the Irish World Academy in 2010 and copies of this study were made available at the launch.Minister Deenihan said the course was “an excitingly unique post graduate programme” which is sure to attract graduate students from around the world.“In offering a programme that will encourage new ways of viewing the design and organisation of festivals, it will without doubt increase the international attractiveness of our many festivals already in existence. I have every confidence that this innovative programme will also ultimately lead to new festivals of a globally significant nature”, he added.Currently, over 25 per cent of postgraduate students at the UL Irish World Academy are from outside the EU.via A world first for UL (289 with pic) | Limerick Post Newswrite. #HearThis: New music and video from Limerick rapper Strange Boy RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Previous articleLIT honours Grand Slam’s leading ladiesNext articleMayday celebration recalls the Limerick Soviet John Keoghhttp://www.limerickpost.ie Facebooklast_img read more

Gear On The Go: September 2019

first_img Mountain House: Chicken Fajita Bowl The Halcyon is a modern take on a traditional mountain pack. Designed with winter in mind, this pack would make a great companion while winter ski touring, ice climbing, and summer rock climbing. The 35:40 liter is large enough to carry your rack, rope, skis, and ice-tools. The Halcyon also is available in a 45: 50-liter version. We’ve used it as an awesome rope bag and will be waiting until winter to put it to its true test. A rope fits comfortable inside, and the side open is great for grabbing snacks without disturbing inside contents. We love the gear loops on the hip belts for easy access tools. We look forward to strapping on some skis, snowboards, and ice axes with the reinforced strap system and pick retainer panel and getting out for a winter adventure.  Being in the backcountry doesn’t mean you have to be uncomfortable. We recently took a three-night backpacking trip to Chicago Basin in Southwest Colorado. At night, it dipped to a balmy 38 degrees in mid-August. The double version of the Explore Down Sleeping Bag from Sea To Summit kept us warm and cozy. And, we got to cuddle all night without fear of sliding off our pad or ending up between them. The double has a built in coupler that keeps you securely on your sleeping pads. We were the perfect temperature all night, highly recommended for snugglers. The sleeping back is packed full of ULTRA-DRY Down with a 750 loft, so you’ll stay warm and dry all night (at least until the 3AM wake up call to start climbing mountains). Chicken Fajitas in the backcountry? What a time to be alive! The Chicken Fajita Bowl from mountain house has become a staple in our backpacking diet. Made with real pieces of tender, cooked chicken, rice, black beans, bell peppers, corn, onions, and seasonings, we always look forward to this meal on the trail. The best part is that there are no artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives, only real food to fuel your adventures. Try this on a tortilla for an added bonus. This also makes an excellent gluten-free option, something we are super happy about. Keep an eye out for Mountain House in the next few months, they have some incredible new recipes coming out that are sure to become favorites. Sea To Summit: Explore Down Double Sleeping Bag Lowe Alpine: Halcyon Our favorite season! September in the West. We are six months into our tour, with only two left to go. Where did the time run off to? This month, we’ve planned a big trip out west to complete a 50-mile loop around The Three Sisters. Roxy is raising money for The Cairn Project, an organization that supports getting young women and girls outside! Below are a few of the items we will be bringing with us on our big trip. Space is always limited in the van, so we’re always looking for the best gear to keep close by. There is one way for this tour to be a reality– our sponsors! Sending a thank you shout out to all of our awesome sponsors that make this tour happen: Sea to Summit, Mountain House, Lowe Alpine, Leki, Big Agnes, Stio, Roofnest, and Franklin County, VA.
