Fans of Mrs Brown’s Boys will have a chance to meet and greet one of D’Movie’s stars at a West Cork festival next month as Eilis O’Carroll (aka Mrs Brown’s neighbour Winnie), opens Union Hall Festival by the Sea in July. The ten-day festival from July 18 to 2 includes pub drama, music, food and the revival of the ‘Person of the Year’ accolade.

The festival line-up was launched at the festival’s Street Feast, a celebration of the village’s seaside streetscape.

Fresh additions to the 2014 Union Hall festival line up include drama by the Gullivers Travelling Theatre Company, presenting Dindons Lovers in both Moloney’s and the Boatman’s pubs during the festival. In the community hall, Tadgh an Astna Players present a play based on the Big Brother concept, titled Bigger Brother.

The Michael Tobin angling competition, a crab catching competition, a fish barbecue in the square, fancy dress parade, car treasure hunt, road bowling, festival bingo, kids games, fashion show, football blitz and an open air horse race night make for a jam packed programme.

The festival winds down on July 27 with a village market fair, a busking competition (no personal PA systems), a ‘Wobbly’ circus show, a cookery demonstration with Michelin Star chef Pat Kiely of O’Connor’s Seafood Bantry and live music from Open the Taps followed by Bog the Donkey.

To enter the busking competition contact Sean Taylor on 086 8165124.
