Carols by Candlelight, in aid of Cork ARC Cancer Support House and Cancer Connect, takes place at The Westlodge Hotel, Bantry on Wednesday, December 20 at 7pm.

Begin the festive season by joining the O’Neill Sisters, the three sensational singing sisters from Co. Kerry, for a night of carols, favourite christmas classics and a mulled wine reception.

Cork ARC is a safe haven for people with cancer and their families, where you can find information, practical help and emotional support. Whatever stage of your diagnosis or treatment, they believe that no one should have to do it alone. If you are a cancer patient or someone close to you has cancer, they are here to offer you specialist professional support. They also offer bereavement support.

Cancer Connect is a free, flexible and confidential transport service to Cork hospitals from West Cork for people receiving cancer treatments (radiotherapy, chemotherapy etc.). The service runs from Castletownbere through Bantry and Goleen through Skibbereen to various Cork hospitals every day (Monday to Friday) at times to suit passengers.

It is provided totally as a voluntary service by a team of Volunteer Drivers and is administered by West Cork Rural Transport.

The O’Neill Sisters have achieved more musically than most people would aspire to in a lifetime: From walking red carpets with Tom Cruise, to singing for Hilary Clinton and the American troops, to singing for many heads of state and political dignitaries all over the world, from performing at the world famous Whisky a Go Go in Los Angeles to taking the stage at the prestigious Orchard Hall Theatre in Tokyo. From hanging out in studios with Bruno Mars, to writing one of the Vanity Fair’s Oscar theme party songs, to winning an international award for their own original album.

Bantry Folk Group and Muintir Bháire Men’s Choir will also be performing.

Family ticket €20, Adults €10, Teenagers €7.

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
