Singer Songwriter Daniel Murphy from Bantry is to play this year’s Trinity Ball, which takes place this Friday night April 4. Daniel’s slot at the major event was announced this week, as part of the final line-up for the sold out Ball.

Singing under the name Danny Battles, the rising star will play the prestigious Ball, which is attended by more than 8,000 revellers and is considered Europe’s biggest private party.  Other acts at the Ball this year include Example, Ben Pearce, 2 Many DJs, Le Galaxie, Original Rude Boys (ORB) and Duke Dumont.

Daniel’s placement on the Trinity Ball bill comes as a major break for his career while he is still a student. Daniel is considered a fresh new talent, writing and singing his own original material.

As a singer songwriter, he has gigged in Ireland and Europe.  Daniel was recorded for the RTE show, presented by film-maker and musician Philip King of Scullion fame, during the Other Voices Festival in Derry in February this year.  Daniel will sing his own song Heart Attack on the show in the coming weeks.

His first solo album is due later this year.  This summer he will play a series of events including the Westport Festival of Music and Food which also features Bell X1, Mundy, Sinead O Connor and David Gray.

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 schulldramagroup@gmail.com
