CELEBRATE the memory and music of a true Irish musical hero at the Legend of Luke Kelly production. Taking place in the Town Hall Theatre, Galway on 4 May, this show features Dublin singer songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Chris Kavanagh. Having been raised on Irish music and singing Irish folk songs, Kavanagh’s performances capture the depth and passion of the great man he was so heavily influenced by. Over the past 16 years, he has amazed audiences abroad and sold out prominent Irish venues such as Vicar Street and The Cork Opera House, with the regular attendance of Luke Kelly’s family. He is joined on stage by Hilary Kavanagh, Joe Finn and Michael Howard. Tickets are €20. Click here for more.
ENJOY an evening with Joe Schmidt and guests in Cork’s Everyman Theatre on Saturday 6 May. In what will almost certainly be his last public appearance in Cork before departing for the World Cup and leaving Irish rugby, Joe will reflect on his amazing career to date and discuss Ireland’s performance over the past number of years as well as his hopes for the Rugby World Cup. Asking the questions is Cork’s own Matt Cooper, one of Ireland’s foremost broadcasters with an innate understanding and love of the game of rugby. The event is a fundraiser supporting the third International Mixed Ability Rugby World Cup (IMART) which will be held in Cork next year. Tickets €40. Visit the Everyman Theatre website for more.
