To celebrate World Oceans Day and SeaFest, NUI Galway is hosting a unique exhibition on Roald Amundsen’s expedition to the South Pole.

The exhibition Cold Recall – Roald Amundsen’s Reflections from the South Pole is based on images from the original lantern slides that Norwegian Polar Explorer Roald Amundsen used in public lectures about his expeditions through the Northwest Passage and to the South Pole.

Her Excellency Else Berit Eikeland, Ambassador of the Royal Norwegian Embassy to Ireland said she is delighted that the exhibition will be on display in Galway.

“Amundsen’s party had immense courage and determination to make the dangerous trek across the ice and snow to reach the South Pole. This exhibition offers a pictorial account of the expedition and of Amundsen, one of the greatest figures in the field of polar exploration and a national hero for a very young nation,” Ms Else Berit Eikeland said.

Amundsen was the first in the world to navigate the Northwest Passage and the first to reach the South Pole on 14 December 1911. Norwegian Polar history is closely connected to defining Norway as an independent state in 1905, and to Norway’s position as a state closely connected to the oceans and to polar regions.

Cold Recall – Roald Amundsen’s Reflections from the South Pole will be on display in the O’Donoghue Centre for Drama, Theatre and Performance at NUI Galway from Friday, 9 June to Saturday, 8 July.

The exhibition Cold Recall – Roald Amundsen’s Reflections from the South Pole is based on images from the original lantern slides that Norwegian Polar Explorer Roald Amundsen used in public lectures about his expeditions through the Northwest Passage and to the South Pole.

Her Excellency Else Berit Eikeland, Ambassador of the Royal Norwegian Embassy to Ireland said she is delighted that the exhibition will be on display in Galway.

“Amundsen’s party had immense courage and determination to make the dangerous trek across the ice and snow to reach the South Pole. This exhibition offers a pictorial account of the expedition and of Amundsen, one of the greatest figures in the field of polar exploration and a national hero for a very young nation,” Ms Else Berit Eikeland said.

Amundsen was the first in the world to navigate the Northwest Passage and the first to reach the South Pole on 14 December 1911. Norwegian Polar history is closely connected to defining Norway as an independent state in 1905, and to Norway’s position as a state closely connected to the oceans and to polar regions.

Cold Recall – Roald Amundsen’s Reflections from the South Pole will be on display in the O’Donoghue Centre for Drama, Theatre and Performance at NUI Galway from Friday, 9 June to Saturday, 8 July.

Exercise4Health is a community exercise programme, designed specifically for those who are seeking to improve their general health and wellbeing, or who are reluctant to engage in exercise, due to a number of health issues. Exercise4Health is being run by NUI Galway, in partnership with Croí and the Kingfisher Fitness Club.  The aim of the programme is to make available an opportunity for those otherwise reluctant to engage in exercise or try getting fit.

Being physically active prevents and helps control a multitude of health problems, especially, heart disease, stroke, diabetes and obesity. Exercise4Health provides a locally accessible opportunity for those with diabetes, heart disease, pulmonary disease; those recovering from stroke or cancer or those with breathing difficulties or other long-term health conditions, to commence a safe and beneficial exercise programme. The programme is ideally suited to anyone trying to reduce weight or indeed improve their overall health and wellbeing.

The six-week rolling exercise programme is specially designed to suit all levels of current fitness and prior to enrolling for the classes, participants will be provided with a medical assessment to ascertain their fitness level.

This new programme, led by expert cardiac physiotherapists/exercise specialists from Croí and delivered in conjunction with the fitness team at Kingfisher Club, will provide participants with:

  • An assessment of their existing fitness level and a personalised plan for improvement
  • Fitness classes delivered at a level to suit everyone
  • Weekly heart-rate monitoring and personal progress tracking
  • A motivating and enjoyable fitness programme which can be continued at home and which if followed will provide a measurable improvement in fitness levels

 The programme is currently run from 1pm – 2pm on Thursdays in the Kingfisher Fitness Centre.  It costs €6 per week, with participants signing up for 6 weeks at a time.

 Huston School of Film and Digital Media (NUI Galway) are delighted to welcome Joseph McBride, author of the award-winning biography Searching for John Ford (2001) for a public lecture at the school entitled  "John Ford, Irish-American Poet and Comedian”. McBride's talk will take place on June 15th at 7pm is free and open to all and will make extensive use of clips from Ford’s Irish films including the Galway-shot Rising of the Moon.

“If there is any single thing that explains either of us,” John Ford once said to Eugene OʼNeill, “itʼs that weʼre Irish.” Their worlds intersected in 1940, when Ford directed his film version of OʼNeillʼs tetralogy of one-act sea plays, The Long Voyage Home. John Ford, aka John Feeney (1894-1973), the American-born son of Irish immigrants, was a man of many varied and often conflicting moods, themes, and obsessions. Although Ford usually is identified with the Western genre, in which he made such masterpieces as Stagecoach and The Searchers, his vast body of work encompasses a wide range of subject matter. Perhaps closest to his heart were his films about his beloved Ireland.

For McBride, "Ford's humor is one of his strongest and most characteristic attributes. Being both a "poet" and a "comedian" is essential to Ford's tragicomic (and very Irish) view of the world and to the anarchic, subversive streak that coexists with his lifelong reverence for tradition.

The J.E Cairnes School of Business & Economics and the Whitaker Institute at NUI Galway are delighted to announce a public event on the outlook for the global economy and financial markets  entitled “Prospects for Growth in an Uncertain World: The United States, Ireland, and the Global Economy”.  

President Trump has called for an overhaul of economic policies in the United States to boost growth. Nearer to home, Brexit negotiations have opened, but a bumpy road lies ahead. Meanwhile, the European economy is at last showing signs of recovery and European businesses are optimistic.

In an intimate conversation, the Whitaker Institute’s Alan Ahearne will speak with Wall Street veteran and Fulbright Specialist Michael Driscoll and NUI Galway’s John McHale about the outlook for the global economy, exploring opportunities for Ireland in the current climate.

Will President Trump's economic plan succeed in "making America great again?". Is Trump’s honeymoon with the stock market coming to an end? Is the election of Emmanuel Macron a turning point for Europe? The panelists will provide various perspectives - political, economic and more.  This will be followed by an interactive audience question and answer session.

Panelists:

Professor Michael J. Driscoll, Clinical Professor of Finance , Willumstad School of Business, Adelphi University, New York, Fulbright US Scholar to NUI Galway, and former Wall Street executive.

Professor John McHale, Dean of the College of Business, Public Policy, and Law at NUI Galway, and former Chairman of the Irish Fiscal Advisory Council; 

Professor Alan Ahearne, Director of the Whitaker Institute, NUI Galway, and former special adviser to the Minister for Finance.

Michael J. Driscoll is a Fulbright Specialist residing in NUI Galway for the summer of 2017. A 28-year Wall Street veteran and Clinical Professor of Finance from New York’s Adelphi University, Dr. Driscoll has been a frequent contributor to global media outlets such as Bloomberg, CNN and Voice of America. Commenting ahead of the event, he said: “Rarely have we seen a period in recent economic history where geo-political factors have the potential to have such a profound impact on markets. A discussion of Ireland and the EU and the political situation in the US is timely and relevant. Events over the last few years could have significant beneficial opportunities for Ireland and the Irish people in the context of the global economy and specifically between the relationships between the EU and the US.”

 The event will take place in The Aula Maxima, The Quadrangle, NUI Galway from 6-7pm. A reception with light refreshments will precede the event and begin at 5.30pm.

 The event is free and open to the public, however those who wish to attend must pre-register

This exhibition offers a pictorial account of the expedition and of Amundsen, one of the greatest figures in the field of polar exploration and a national hero for a very young nation,” Ms Else Berit Eikeland said.

Amundsen was the first in the world to navigate the Northwest Passage and the first to reach the South Pole on 14 December 1911. Norwegian Polar history is closely connected to defining Norway as an independent state in 1905, and to Norway’s position as a state closely connected to the oceans and to polar regions.

Cold Recall – Roald Amundsen’s Reflections from the South Pole will be on display in the O’Donoghue Centre for Drama, Theatre and Performance at NUI Galway from Friday, 9 June to Saturday, 8 July.

Exercise4Health is a community exercise programme, designed specifically for those who are seeking to improve their general health and wellbeing, or who are reluctant to engage in exercise, due to a number of health issues. Exercise4Health is being run by NUI Galway, in partnership with Croí and the Kingfisher Fitness Club.  The aim of the programme is to make available an opportunity for those otherwise reluctant to engage in exercise or try getting fit.

Being physically active prevents and helps control a multitude of health problems, especially, heart disease, stroke, diabetes and obesity. Exercise4Health provides a locally accessible opportunity for those with diabetes, heart disease, pulmonary disease; those recovering from stroke or cancer or those with breathing difficulties or other long-term health conditions, to commence a safe and beneficial exercise programme. The programme is ideally suited to anyone trying to reduce weight or indeed improve their overall health and wellbeing.

The six-week rolling exercise programme is specially designed to suit all levels of current fitness and prior to enrolling for the classes, participants will be provided with a medical assessment to ascertain their fitness level.

This new programme, led by expert cardiac physiotherapists/exercise specialists from Croí and delivered in conjunction with the fitness team at Kingfisher Club, will provide participants with:

  • An assessment of their existing fitness level and a personalised plan for improvement
  • Fitness classes delivered at a level to suit everyone
  • Weekly heart-rate monitoring and personal progress tracking
  • A motivating and enjoyable fitness programme which can be continued at home and which if followed will provide a measurable improvement in fitness levels

 The programme is currently run from 1pm – 2pm on Thursdays in the Kingfisher Fitness Centre.  It costs €6 per week, with participants signing up for 6 weeks at a time.
