IT’S Culture Night tonight — and the Rugby World Cup opens in London so most tastes will be catered for one way or another in the next 24 hours. And, if not, then Kerry and Dublin footballers will knock lumps out of each other on Sunday as they try to rekindle the magic the All-Ireland finals between these counties generated a few decades ago.

It is an extraordinary, curious and life-affirming juxtaposition that in a world where Isis have made public crucifixion an almost everyday expression of humanity’s capacity for barbarism; in a world where Scotland may cede from the United Kingdom; in a world where an 82,300 capacity Croke Park might be filled twice over for a football final that does not involve Dublin, that we can still find the time and enthusiasm to organise 900 arts events to mark Culture Night.

CANCEL all other engagements. It’s Culture Night 2013, and it’s countrywide. Tonight, art and culture centres and organisations will open their doors until late, for free access to collections, workshops and events. Open your senses to new experiences, sounds, and ideas, and enlarge your awareness of our rich heritage.
