The Festival of Poland at Clare Museum continues this week. On 26th September there will be a lunchtime lecture on the Polish O’Deas who can trace their origins to County Clare. The talk will be given by Mietek Odya who is an active member of the Dysert O’Dea Clan Association. The talk will start at 1pm at Clare Museum.

On Saturday 28th September, Jakub Kacprzak an Irish based Polish archaeologist and one of the organisers of the festival, will give a morning lecture at the museum comparing the megalithic archaeology of Ireland and Poland. It will begin at 11am.

In the afternoon of Saturday 28th September Clare Museum will be showing the Roman Polanski film ‘The Pianist’. This film will begin at 2.30pm sharp and should finish just before the All-Ireland Senior Hurling Final replay begins on television at 5pm.
