  • Visual Arts Exhibition'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. Exhibition Launch Friday 1st November 7pm-9pm Free Admission All Welcome

When Diego Maradona arrived in Naples in 1984, for a world-record fee, the cities cherished football team was transformed from lowly underachievers to Italian and European Champions.

  • Drama 'Freedom of the City' Preformed by the Carnegie Players

    Gala Opening 7.30pm. Directed by Terry Doherty 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. Tickets €15
