Donal Clancy in mix at St John’s in the days ahead

The Kerryman (North Kerry) - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

ST John’s vi­brant pro­gramme of events con­tin­ues apace as the sea­son turns with a scion of one of the coun­try’s best-loved mu­si­cal fam­i­lies head­ing the bill next week.

Donal Clancy - son of Liam - hits Lis­towel on Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 27, in his solo tour of the coun­try. He’s a hugely-ac­com­plished singer/song­writer in his own right of course, but the mu­sic of his fa­ther and un­cles cour­ses through every note - with a voice eerily like his old man’s. An ab­so­lute must for folk and tra­di­tional fans ev­ery­where, with doors open­ing at 7.40pm (€12).

Wed­nes­day next at St John’s sees a quirky nos­tal­gia buzz for peo­ple over a cer­tain age with a one-man play sure to en­ter­tain. Padraig Pott’s Guide to Walk­ing sees Sea­mus O’Rourke in the ac­tor’s and direc­tor’s seat hark­ing back to the sev­en­ties and early eight­ies in ru­ral Ire­land at the cusp of the Bun­ga­low Bliss years. Doors open at 7.40pm, with tick­ets at €15.

That quin­tes­sen­tial aul’ Dublin wit hits the stage on Fri­day, Novem­ber 3, with No Smoke With­out Fire – a comic drama by Paddy Mur­ray full of what’s de­scribed as ‘sharp Dublin wit’. Tick­ets €12/doors open at 7.40pm.

It fea­tures ‘ the story of Larry, the cash, the camper van and the de­ceased hus­band’ in an en­thralling blurb promis­ing a great night of hi­lar­i­ous en­ter­tain­ment.

A Pa­cific Is­land com­mu­nity that has re­jected moder­nity to re­turn to tra­di­tional ways fea­tures on the big screen at St John’s on Thurs­day, Novem­ber 2, in Tanna - di­rected by Bently Dean and Martin But­ler. The award-win­ning film is pre­sented in as­so­ci­a­tion with Ac­cess Cin­ema.
