Mary Lucking
Title – Finnegans Craic
Business – Rúla Búla

What if James Joyce had been hanging out at the Rúla Búla Irish Pub, sketching ideas for his book (Finnegan’s Wake) on beer coasters?

Artist Mary Lucking has created a series of paperboard beer coasters featuring notes, quotes, doodles and/or drawings about Finnegan’s Wake. Each coaster can be understood as a stand-alone piece; combined the series builds to give a general sense of the book (storyline, characters, great/funny quotes, etc). The coasters are being distributed at the Rúla Búla bar and revealed weekly in this installation until the complete set is presented.

Three Quick Notes of Relationship:
1. The book’s main character is a pub owner and a fair amount of the story takes place in a pub.
2. Finnegan’s Wake was originally released as a serialization (named A Work in Progress), as are the coasters.
3. Joyce apparently spent a couple of years obsessively taking notes for the book (who says it couldn’t have been on coasters in a pub?).
