Visual Arts- 'Through My Eyes' by Jennifer Fitzgerald

 

Exhibition Launch Friday 1st November 7-9pm
Admission Free. All Welcome.

'Through My Eyes' by Jennifer Fitzgerald

Through my eyes” is a collection of paintings from Jennifer Fitzgerald using two of her favourite mediums, Ink/Watercolour and Oil.
When Jennifer moved to Kenmare nearly 5 years ago, she was amazed at how her art started to take a completely different direction. It was the energy of Kenmare, the stunning landscape and friends that were made, that she feels transformed her style and subject matter.

Streetscapes, landscapes and the indigenous animals of Kenmare and surrounding areas had become her main subject matter.
She feels her painting has become more confident, loose and energetic which was always her goal as an artist.
In this exhibition, jennifer tries to convey the energy this town has given her and to say thank you.

Music - A Salute to the Crooners performed by Dave Lawlor

 

Saturday 21st March
Tickets:€25

A Salute to the Crooners

This spectacular audio-visual Show A Salute to the Crooners sees Dave Lawlor, one of Ireland’s greatest singers pay tribute to the songs of Frank Sinatra, Andy Williams, Matt Monro, Tony Bennett, Nat King Cole, Elvis Presley, Engelbert Humperdinck, Perry Como and Dean Martin. Not only do you witness the crooner classics come to life with Dave’s velvet voice but see the fabulous portrayal of images of all the artists on a large circular screen.

With a career spanning over thirty years, Dave Lawlor, star of the highly acclaimed ‘Reeling in the Showband Years’ Show was chosen by music promotions company Linden Productions to front this visually stunning show. Only an entertainer of Lawlor’s exceptional calibre could pay homage – accurately, respectfully, and with the appropriate humility – to so many musical icons in one show.  Acknowledged by his contemporaries as one of Ireland’s best singers, Dave has received many accolades to date, including 3 top ten hits in the Irish Charts. Dave’s vibrant stage presence will bring the audience through the great crooner songbook and some of the best know hits of the twentieth century such as Born Free, New York, New York, Portrait of my Love, The Wonder of You, Sway, Please Release Me, Moon River, That’s Amore, My Way and many more. With a penchant for sentiment, romance and charm, Dave will enthral in this visually stunning audio-visual show and take you on a nostalgic trip down memory lane, superbly enhanced by the rare images of the stars. As Red Hurley enthused about A Salute to the Crooners, ‘Lawlor stands in the shoes of Giants…….and they’re a perfect fit’.

Drama Fourth Night 'Freedom of the City' by The Carnegie Players

Monday 25th November 8pm
Tickets: €15

Freedom of the City by Brian Friel

Freedom of the City is a play by the Irish playwright Brian Friel first produced in 1973. Set in Derry 1970, the play interweaves the 'present' - a hearing into the deaths of three unarmed citizens at the hands of the security forces, the reaction of the population shown by the character of the Balladeer and flashbacks to the main story - the final hours of the lives of three peaceful marchers who accidentally stumble into the Mayor's parlour after the march is hit by smoke and tear gas. Most of the action revolves around the unwinding personal stories of the three as they attempt to wait out the violence so they can go home only to find that they are now the centre of the action. Lily, a 43-year-old mother of eleven, Michael, a 22-year-old man (unemployed), and 'Skinner', 21 and unemployed (signs himself as Freeman of the City in the Visitor's Book), are the antiheroes, who perish as British soldiers shoot them in cold blood when they surrender.

The ultimate irony is that the judge finds the security forces didn't act punitively, that Lily and Michael were armed according to non-existent witnesses and that Skinner was the innocent instead of the angry young man who despite his background wanted a free Ireland.

Brian Patrick Friel (1929- 2015))was an Irish dramatist, short story writer and founder of the Field Day Theatre Company. He had been considered one of the greatest living English-language dramatists. He has been likened to an "Irish Chekhov" and described as "the universally accented voice of Ireland"
