Culture Night Event
We would like to warmly invite you to our Culture Night event at Ballymote Community Library next Friday week the 18th of September from 8pm. It will be an evening of real local culture: we’re very excited to be launching a new Art group for professional to semi-professional artists from the surrounding areas and their first shared exhibition of work in the library exhibition space. We also have local poets and Irish musicians from the area performing on the night: this is the real, contemporary and historic culture of Ballymote as expressed by our artists, poets and musicians in practice today and what better night and place to come together to enjoy it as a community than at Ballymote Community Library J
Artists involved in the show include Clive Bright, Clare Doohan, Catherine Fanning, Brigit Egging and Tobias Baudry, Deirdre Houston, Audrey Irwin, Fergus Lyons, Mary Rohan and Paul Murray.
Contemporary poetry reading from acclaimed local writer Jessamine O’Connor and other poets from the hugely successful local group the Hermit Collective along with traditional Irish music from some of our local gems, Gregory Daly, Helen Grehan, Jimmy Noctor, Roger Stephens and Maureen Lane.
