Bantry Community Choir has been invited to perform at Thomond Park on Friday, October 30 for the 6pm match between Munster and Ulster.

The Bantry Choir is really getting into the swing of Mental Health Month during October. As part of the West Cork Feel Good festival in Bantry, the choir will host the ‘Live Life and Sing’ concert at the Maritime Hotel in Bantry on Friday, October 9. They will also take part in the ‘West Cork Big Sing’ on Saturday, October 10.

“We are thrilled to be singing at Thomond Park, says Nora Edgeworth, the choir’s organiser. “There are many avid rugby fans within the choir who can’t wait to be part of the exciting evening of sport too! Within the rugby community, players such as Alan Quinlan have done so much to promote openness to lessen the stigma around mental health difficulties that are a part of the life challenges that face us all.  We are delighted to be playing our part and bringing the worlds of song and sport together in calling for greater dialogue and openness around mental health and well being which affects everyone in our communities.”

Bantry Community Choir will be singing with the Munster Supporters’ Choir. “We are all so pleased that Bantry Community Choir will be performing with us for such a worthy cause and that together we will be involved in raising awareness during Mental Health month,” says Claire O’Donoghue, director of the Munster Supporters’ Choir.

“Christmas is just around the corner so watch out for more performances in and around Bantry,” adds Norman Collins, musical director of the Bantry choir.

The Cast of Harold Pinter’s ‘No Man’s Land’ are on their way to the All-Ireland finals, having won 26 awards, including five best of Festivals, at the Amateur Drama League of Ireland annual three act festivals. The play ‘No Man’s Land, by Harold Pinter, the Nobel Prize Winning Author is directed by Jennifer Williams.

One last opportunity to view this multi award winning play at Skibbereen Town Hall, on Saturday 14th of April, before the finals.

Having met by chance in a pub, two aging writers continue a long night of drinking and reminiscing in a stately London home. As the night wears on, their conversation wanders through memories long forgotten or invented. Is their encounter real or a delusion? Are they strangers or do they share a past history? When unexpected guests intrude upon an increasingly surreal evening, the atmosphere quickly changes from friendly to threatening, and the encounter becomes a game of survival.

Tickets may be purchased at the door or in advance by emailing
