Magically Overactive Imagination a collection of new work by Gemma Lalor will run for the month of August.  All are welcome. 

Friday 8th September @ 8pm

A wonderful evening of music and song guaranteed featuring Ann Kirrane, daughter of legendary concertina player, Chris Droney. Ann plays concertina in the same style as her father but these days, her voice is her main instrument. She was born to sing. After the hugely successful launch of her second album at Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann last year in Ennis, she toured the east coast of America in Oct and returned to play Texas in March.  Joining Ann will be Garry O’Briain, one of the most sought after accompanists, record producer and member of Buttons & Bows and Boys of the Lough and Ronan Greene, 2008 senior fiddle champion. 

Tickets €12

Loving                            2016                         123 mins         Cert: 12A
The true story of Mildred (Ruth Negga) and Richard (Joel Edgerton) Loving, an inter-racial couple from Virginia, who married in 1958. Their marriage being illegal in the state, both were arrested but given suspended sentences on condition they leave the state, not to return for 25 years.  With understated, sensitive performances by the two leads this is the story of ordinary people forced into an extraordinary situation.

Presented in association with Access Cinema.

Tickets €7
