    Housed in the beautiful surroundings of the 19th century Dock building The Jury Room Cafe Bar is open from 10.30am (TuesdaySaturday) providing a warm and convivial atmosphere in which you can relax, pore over the daily newspaper or read from the large selection of books and journals that adorn its shelves. The cafe serves a selection of speciality coffees and fairtrade teas as well delicious homemade scones and cakes. An ideal place for elevenses or to meet friends during the day. The Jury Room is also open on the evening of performances at The Dock from 7.45pm so you can enjoy a pre-show or interval drink. Why not pop in, and take a few moments to view our exhibitions and judge for yourself why The Jury Room offers one of Carrick-on-Shannons most welcoming atmospheres.

    ann QUInn: nEw paInTInGmETamOrpHOsIs CrEaTED By DIsTanCESpace and distance feature in a lot of my works, which may possibly

    be as a result of growing up at the edge of a valley in East Donegal,

    where I could see rolling hills as far as the eye can see into the North

    and into West Donegal. Everything I paint is from time spent in different

    places, whether it be my childhood home, an artist residency, or travel

    abroad. Many times I bring several different places into one work, such

    as the piece Hyenas down in the Median Green has hyenas that I saw in

    Ethiopia placed in a field in Donegal. AnnQuinn
