Des O’Driscoll’s pick of the best things to do for the week ahead.
THE VAUGHAN BEQUEST
Art collector Henry Vaughan recommended January as the best time to display the 31 paintings by JMW Turner he bequeathed to the National Gallery in Dublin. So this annual treat will run until the end of the month.
It’s Nollaig na Mban on Wednesday, and Finbar Wright is playing in Cork Opera House.
THE GOOD WIFE
Better late than never, we suppose, but RTÉ has put season seven of the excellent legal drama in a slot where it won’t get the audience it deserves.
Thursday, RTÉ One, 11.15pm
THE HATEFUL EIGHT
Quentin Tarantino’s western rolls into town on Friday, with the director’s trademark mix of brilliant individual scenes and graphic violence.
DAVID BOWIE: BLACKSTAR
Bowie turns 69 on Friday and marks the occasion with the release of his new album, his follow-up to The Next Day from 2013.
