Our US Ireland Research awards for @americanchamber and @royalirishacademy will be given out tonight in Dublin. These awards represent the famous Hamilton Quaternion Equation which was a formula dreamed up by the Irish Mathematitian whilst walking on the Royal Canal near Cabra. He had no paper so he scribed the formula onto the limestone bridge of Boombridge. This 5 x formula has become the building block for most computer graphics and still vital over 160 years later.It also inspired our design for this trophy. #irishdesign#maths#bespokeawards # design #metalwork

A great experience trying out one of these #Boyne currachs at the weekend on #Lough Ramor in #Cavan. This pic is on an island on the lake. Lough Ramor feeds the Blackwater a tributary of the #Boyne .These currachs are made of natural hide and hazel branches woven into this oval structure. They are an #ancient craft for crossing the Boyne. Built at #Newgrange by Claidhbh O Gibhne. #Irish craft #boats#currachs#meath.
Thanks to all who co operated with our #sickofplastic campaign to ask supermarkets to reduce overpackaging of fruit , vegetables , confectionary, water, coffee, meat, eggs, and milk. Today we asked the public to shop and drop their plastic after checking out. This was a @friendsoftheearthireland campaign which I have adopted locally in #Skerries . We ask @musgrave.marketplace to reduce plastic at Supervalu stores and introduce paper and cardboard where possible and introduce own brand milk in tetra pack format.I also wish to ask for more pick and self bag into paper rather than blister packs. We know how harmful to the environment this packaging is from seeing it deposoted around our offshore islands and floating around our seas.
The classic wave form of Ruray in a fractal black and copper still stands up to scrutiny at Light and Building. The fair is now on its 2nd last day. We thank #meathleo for their support on this fair. Have enjoyed studying some of the best designers work and amazing displays. #desklight#wave#designerlighting.
