Here we go, it's 2017 degree show season! We've begun compiling dates and details for all art, design, fashion and architecture shows we can find all over the island of Ireland to help you see the best new work from young Irish creatives. Things kick off early with Burren College of Art's MFA running until 28 April, and we will update this regularly as we get the details for other shows. Is your show missing? Then email or tweet us the details and we'll add it ASAP. We list shows county by county, starting off with Dublin, and within each county shows are listed in chronological order. Without further ado...
