Irish Degree Shows 2015

Here it is, your guide to Ireland's art, design, fashion and architecture degree shows in 2015! More than 20 shows across the country, north and south of the border, are listed below with more to come as I find them. They are listed by county (kicking off with Dublin, as it's the one with the most shows and the biggest audience) and wherever a county has more than one show, they're listed by date so you can see what you need to get to first. You can start planning your summer now...
