Heritage Events from Conor Nelligan

Please take note of the following events as well:

Mary Keane  
"A Question of Language"
In the County Library HQ there will be a video exhibition featuring interviews with some of the former attendees of Coláiste Iosagáin including Micheál Ó Muircheartaigh. The exhibit will focus on their thoughts on the Irish language and methods they believe would assist in Irish language sustainment and development today. The exhibition commences on the 15th of December 2016.

Moses Bridge Miscellany 1916-2016 Souvenir Issue: Moses Bridge Miscellany 1916-2016 Souvenir Issue is now ready for publication.  It is packed with stories, songs, poems, anecdotes & images from the Barony of Duhallow & beyond, with an accompanying 14 track CD compilation - Spindlers Twist - including the single Here's to you Karl Spindler written specially to mark the 100th anniversary of the Rising. The book will be launched at a concert of traditional music with Geraldine O Callaghan & Graham Guerin & guests at the Trade Union Hall, Kanturk on Friday, December 16th.
Mallow Library  
 'The Way We Were: a look back at life in Ireland a century ago':  
Mallow Library is delighted to host the very popular 'The Way We Were: a look back at life in Ireland a century ago.' This was originally commissioned as part of Cork County Library's 1916 commemorative programme and has been very well received in many of our branches. It's told through stories, songs and music and is performed by the wonderful Michael Twomey of 'Cha and Miah' fame along with soprano Linda Kenny and musician Alan Carney. It's very entertaining and audiences have enjoyed the sing-along aspect. It takes place on Saturday 17th December at 2.30pm so is a great festive treat. It's free of charge but please book a place by calling the library on 022-21821 or drop in for more information.

It is hoped that this update has been of interest and all the best for now,
