Loveable loser Adrian Mole back from Thatcher years

St Mungo's Luganulk 2: The Umpire Strikes Back Lyric Theatre, Belfast Until tomorrow, 8pm

By Grania McFadden/Elizabeth Baird

Once officially the worst Gaelic football team in Ireland, St Mungo's of Luganulk have turned everything around.

They are climbing up the league, the Mini-Mungos are on a roll and the new ladies' team is gaining a reputation for rough play. Plans for the club's centenary celebrations are in full swing, when a clash of egos in the committee leads to that most Irish of problems; a split. The teams go to war with themselves, to the delight of their rivals. Who will save the day?

Observations: David Fathi, Sjoerd Knibbeler, Jochen Lempert and August Strindberg

Belfast Exposed, Photography 23 Donegall St, Belfast, Until October 14, 11am to 5pm

There is still time to visit this most unusual exhibition of works by David Fathi, Sjoerd Knibbeler, Jochen Lempert and August Strindberg.

The common factor is science.Lempert first studied as a biologist before turning to photography in the early Nineties.

Fathi, after completing a master's degree in maths and computer science, started his personal research in contemporary media side-by-side with his career in engineering, while Knibbeler studied photography at the Royal Academy of Arts, The Hague and has a fascination for the movement of air, clouds, climatology and flight.

All three have international reputations and are award winners within their specific disciplines.

Once again, Belfast Exposed is offering us a wonderful, questioning exhibition requiring us to engage with the images presented and in this case to be aware of the relationship between art and science.
