Opening Hours

The GLUCKSMAN Little Interview

Each week we ask the same set of questions to a different member of our community. Throughout 2015, we interviewed diverse members of the Glucksman community - artists, academics, staff members, guests, audiences and workshop participants. The responses were funny, inspiring, revealing and always a great read. The archive of 2015's interviews can be found here. Thanks to all who took part!

This week ahead of this weekend's Jazz festival, and a lunchtime concert in the gallery spaces, our Little Interview features Christine Dennehy, newly appointed school manager, school of music and theatre UCC.
