November 2013 saw the first ever Camp CoderDojo take place at the Quality Hotel in Clonakilty, West Cork. Attended by 170 kids, mentors and parents from all over Ireland, the event which was sponsored by SouthWestern and the Quality Hotel, was a hub of activity from start to finish; children ranging from 7 to 16 years of age learned how to code and develop their skills in areas such as Scratch Programming, Game Development, Web development, Robotics including Arduinos and Raspberry Pi’s, Minecraft Modding, 3D Modelling and 3D Printing.

The organisers would like to thank all mentors who assisted so much at the Camp and all those who supported the event – SouthWestern and The Quality Hotel Clonakilty, McCarthy and Co. Solicitors, HighResolution Printer Cartridges and Office Supplies, Rapid Broadband, ScienceWeek,  The Model Railway Village, West Cork Sand Circles, Ummera Smoked Foods, Ballygowan/Britvic and all those who helped and supported us in any way.

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
