    Great, balanced revamp show, with substantial content and a measured restraint. The new, structured format, the third (and fourth) contributing voice, the considered reviews, the focused interviews, all invested with a good-natured sense of fun, wit and personality – it’s a fitting expression of the Irish creative scene and its interests.

  5. Sid Clark Says:
